    Negiyaki Yamamoto is a restaurant serving negiyaki (Okonomiyaki savory pancake with green onions), one of Osaka’s lesser-known traditional fried foods, and teppanyaki. As Negiyaki Yamamoto is located inside the concourse of Shin-Osaka Shinkansen (Bullet Train) Station, it is the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat while traveling. For the benefit of customers who may be in a rush, some of the fried foods are pre-cooked, and then finished off just before serving. The Suji-Negi, which includes plenty of spring onions with slow-boiled beef tendons and konjac, is especially popular.

The concept behind the pub is offering ""offering Japan's most delicious super dry beer,"" and customers can sample seven barrel draft beers in an environment where great care is taken not only for freshness and pouring but also with washing the glasses. At lunchtime, the pub serves 100% pure coarsely ground beef hamburger baked in a stone oven, noteworthy for speedy preparation and a flavor that can't be found anywhere else, an unforgettable treat. In the evening, customers can try some of the 11 ingenious variations on Kushiage (skewer-fried meat or vegetables), spare ribs with a hearty sauce, spicy fried chicken wings, and many other foods favored by beer drinkers.
