Jiyuken Namba Main Store

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.

    This restaurant features Japanese style Western food. Especially the famous cuisine is curry cooked with their own recipe. A typical Japanese curry puts curry soup on rice, but their curry was mixed...
  • A nice Curry Rice meal but not-so-good service and ambience

    當地人都會前往的店 , 六年前吃過 , 這次去是外帶 , 口感沒變 , 蛋包飯跟咖哩飯依舊保持水準 , 可惜這次因為帶小孩的關係 不方便在店裡內用 , 推薦前往
