Four restaurants that even picky people from Osaka adore! Not only is the food delicious, the price is good, too.
Residents of Kansai are well-known for having a severely high standard for food. The famous attraction of Osaka, Dotonbori, has an amazing amount of restaurants and street vendors. It is definitely a very competitive area for good food. The four restaurants I am introducing today provide classic dishes that even receives high praise from people in Kansai.
‘Osaka=Takoyaki’ leaves a deeply-rooted impression. Soft and tender textures and fresh octopus, along with soy sauce, mayonnaise, seaweed powder, bonito flakes and salt (which is not added in other Takoyaki) will make you realize why this Tako Ichiban is considered the best Takoyaki in Osaka.
It continues the history of flavour passed down from generation to generation since opening. Other than udon with a great texture from the soft and tender tofu skin, the exclusive broth is made from a secret recipe.
Crispy crust and an exclusive secret sauce make the unforgettable taste. Meanwhile, the restaurant provides traditional Doteyaki of Osaka and motsuco (beef pot). This place allows you to enjoy the most authentic Osaka cuisine. Remember that you cannot double dip the sauce when eating Osaka barbeque.
King-emon is considered the best soy sauce ramen of Osaka. Besides serving the chashao, shredded bamboo shoots, half-cooked egg and large amount of green onion, the broth is divided into gold, red and black soy sauce. Each one has their own distinct taste. I recommend the black soy sauce ramen with its thick, strong flavor.
