    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Higashishinsaibashi 1-18-18
    Nishiya Honten is a long-established Shabu-shabu hotpot restaurant. The restaurant’s signature Shabu-shabu set meal gives diners the opportunity to enjoy delicious marbled beef from Japanese Black Cattle, together with sashimi and Udon noodles to finish off, making for a very filling meal. “Udon Chiri,” a dish developed by the former owner, combines full-bodied, smooth-tasting Osaka Udon noodles with seasonal vegetables, seafood (including prawns, etc.), and specially-made Ponzu vinegar; it is the ideal hotpot dish for a banquet. Nishiya Honten is located in a traditional Japanese-style wooden building, with a range of dining options, including private rooms with tatami or with hori-gotatsu (where diners sit around a heated table in a depression in the floor).

    Restaurant was (at best) half full at 6:30 pm on a Sunday night. The lack of a crowd was quickly explained by the quality of food. We ordered a nabeyaki udon and a tenzaru soba - the udon broth...

    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Nishishinsaibashi 2-7-27
    A venerable “yoshoku” Japanese-style Western restaurant located in Osaka City’s Chuo Ward said to be the originator of omelet rice. It is believed that a dish created for a regular with a weak stomach who always ordered rice and omelets in 1925 became the model for the popular Japanese dish. The restaurant is housed in a tea ceremony house-style purely Japanese building and the omelet rice served here tastes extra special when eaten while seated on a zabuton cushion on the tatami mat floor. In addition to standard ketchup-based omelet rice, the restaurant also serves a wide variety of variations, such as hayashi sauce and beef stew-based versions.

    It was our first Rice Meal in Osaka, the food served in just a blink of an eye, average price ¥830, u can add cheese for extra topping too! The Omurice is a must !

    One of the oldest “yoshoku” Japanese-style Western restaurants in Osaka, founded in 1910, famous for its curry rice. The shop’s renowned curry is served mixed with rice and topped with a raw egg, an idea born out of a desire to serve piping hot curry in a time when no commercial warming or reheating devices were available. The only toppings (other than the raw egg) are onions and beef. The shop’s “light” dashi stock gives the curry a unique flavor, and adding some sauce provided at each table further enhances the deliciousness. The closest station is Namba Station.
