In a nation that values rising early, it can be surprisingly difficult to find a decent brunch in Osaka, especially since gathering for the mid-morning meal hasn’t quite caught on yet. Read Culture Trip’s guide to the best places for brunch in Minami to make your excursion a little bit easier.
One of the best Japanese foods for brunch is ramen, and it’s hard to find a better spot than Hanamaruken. This tiny shop lies near an temple, Hozenji, and an alleyway of the same name. There are less than 20 seats along a counter where you can watch the staff cook your ramen up close. The texture of the ramen is the perfect balance between springy and soft, and its home-made soup base is flavourful, making for a delicious and filling Japanese brunch.
