    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Namba 1-1-18 Hozenji Alley
    Located roughly a five-minute walk away from each line of Namba Station. This is a well-established specialist katsudon (breaded pork fillet on rice) restaurant, and it has an elegant exterior which fits into Hozenji Yokocho alley. In the restaurant, there are only 10 counter seats, and the service style is with the rice and the pork cutlet being served separately. The good flavor from the Japanese soup stock can be tasted in the sweet juice, these rather large pork cutlets are soaked in these juices. If the pork fillet was put on top of the rice with the juices, the dish would become a little soupy. If it is to your liking, they are delicious even eaten separately. In addition to the standard Katsudon, the menu has various kinds of dishes which you can enjoy including Katsudon with Korean pickles on rice, Katsudon with cheese on rice and Katsudon with curry on rice.

    Let’s be honest, Katsudon is always good.But OH GOD I was ont ready for this one. The owner is a real master, everything is freshly cooked in individual pans and topping separated from the rice so...

    Osaka Osakashi Konohana-ku Shimaya 6-2-61
    This is an okonomiyaki (Japanese style meat and vegetable pancake) restaurant on the 5th floor of the “Universal City Walk” shopping center next to Universal Studios Japan. The interior of the store consists of a playful pop décor, and opened with the concept of the famous store “Tsuruhashi Fugetsu” being imported reversely from the United States. Besides the classic okonomiyaki, the restaurant offers an American style menu including okonomiyaki sandwiched in a bun like a hamburger and pizza style okonomiyaki. The fried soba hot dog using straight-from-the pot egg noodle is also popular. The nearest station is Universal City Station.

    Osaka Osakashi Kita-ku Tenjimbashi 4-7-21
    This octopus dumpling shop is in Kita Ward of Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture and is a branch of “Wanaka,” which is known for having lines form at its Sennichimae, Osaka location. The dumplings, prepared carefully on an iron grill with broth made from kelp and bonito, have a traditional Osaka taste. The exterior is crispy and fragrant, with the soft interior forming the perfect combination. Many enjoy top them with sauce, which has a fruity taste, or kettle-cooked salt. For a snack you can eat while walking on the street, you can’t go wrong with the ever-popular ebisen (octopus dumplings between shrimp crackers).

    Honestly I cant find anything better than this small food stall. Great prices compared to more populated areas. 800 yen for 15 pieces where others offer far less pieces for the same prices. You can...

    Osaka Osakashi Nishinari-ku Tamadenishi 2-3-1
    This long-standing takoyaki (octopus dumpling) restaurant was founded in 1933 in Nishinari Ward, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture. This place is said to be where the founder’s “radio-yaki,” which contained konjac (devil’s tongue) and beef, was invented, and this would become the foundation for “takoyaki.” The octopus is lightly grilled to keep it nice and soft, which brings out the delicious flavor. It’s said to be tasty even without sauce or when cold. There’s also the popular “negiyaki” (green onion pancake), rich with the taste of green onions, and suji konjac (devil’s tongue with sinewy meat). There is a space for eating in.

Osaka Areas


While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country’s third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people’s openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname “the nation’s kitchen."
