Review about Halal Ramen Shop “Honolu”

By Ros san



I’m very excited when I came across Halal Ramen in Osaka located in Namba, just a few inches from me.

Namba is a city located in the center of Osaka. The Namba City at the Nankai Namba Station is a popular shopping zone with convenient access to approximately 300 shops and restaurants that serve famous, reasonably priced foods of Osaka and it is very popular among tourist.


Last Saturday, I went to Namba Station and the main purpose I go here is to try the Halal Ramen at Honolu Restaurant. After a 10 minute–walk from Exit No.5 of Namba Station, you will reach to Honolu Ramen Restaurant. However, I feel that I was quite a long walk for me.


Upon arriving at the shop, I chose a few courses from the menu and conveniently I just have to pay at the vending machine inside the restaurant and handed the ticket to the staff. I went for a set of Chicken Bowl set at 1100yen. Whoever purchased this set is entitled to choose any ramen they want, of which I decided to have Extreme Hot Shoyu Ramen.



The ramen is definitely scrumptious. What I favor the most about Honolu Ramen is its noodles. The noodles are rolled into thin shapes which make it very elastic and easy to eat. It goes very well with the ramen soup and the taste is beyond words!


Since I decided to go for Extreme Hot Ramen, the soup is considered very spicy. You may not want to order Extreme Hot Ramen if you are not an avid fan of spicy food. I drank a lot of water while enjoying the spicy ramen, but I cannot stop eating this ramen since I am so fond of Asian foods. If you do not like spicy ramen, I suggest you to try non-spicy Rich Chicken Flavor Ramen for beginning and it is suitable for kids too.


Besides the ramen, I went for gyoza as the side dish. Their gyoza is simply irresistible and mouthwatering. The gyouza comes with different flavor of dipping sauce which the customers can choose from.


Honolu Restaurant provides a range of selections on its menu and the price is affordable. It is not too spacious as it only has 11 seats inside. If you plan to go to this place, don’t be upset if it’s full house. Patiently, wait for your turn to be served especially during peak hours. Don’t fret because you do not have to stand or lean against the wall since seats are provided outside the shop.



A clean prayer room is also provided in this restaurant, so it is very convenient for us to dine as well as performing our solah here. Besides that, the chef and the assistants are very warm and friendly.



I hope that this restaurant makes it ways to continue serving customers besides providing convenience for Muslim visitors to find Halal Ramen in Osaka.

So if you go to Namba Osaka do drop by at Honolu Ramen Restaurant and go for their halal ramen, I could rest assure you will not regret it.
