Want to try something truly local for brunch? Visit Menya, a udon and soba noodle store. At this budget establishment, customers stand at a counter to eat their steaming bowls of noodles. While this may not be the most comfortable or relaxing brunch venue, it certainly is locally flavoured, both literally and figuratively. You’ll no doubt find yourself brushing shoulders with the locals of Osaka while you enjoy your tasty, homemade bowl of noodles.

Appearances can be deceiving, so at first glance you might dismiss Ebisu as just another street-food stall. Although tiny, this noodle store only has six seats and a few standing spots, Ebisu is a popular place with locals for breakfast and lunch. They sell ramen, udon, and soba noodles, with a variety of soup-bases that range from flavourful tonkotsu, to light miso soup, and even oriental curry.
