The dining hall in those days was called "Gorohachiya" and it was used by a lot of customers as a local dining hall.
The specialty in those days was a "stew udon (wheat noodle)" which was only available at two places in Osaka.
Osaka’s representative dish: This dish on the menu, which added a friendly element of Western style to udon (wheat noodle), was loved by a lot of people. The dining hall was very busy every day and the large caldron was emptied three times a day.
The grandfather who took over the dining hall next, Masami, was an unusual person who had a great language skill and became a chef after living in Dalian.
After coming back home, he opened a Japanese restaurant “Gorohachi-azumaya” because he realized how great Japanese food was while living overseas.
