Ok! On to food in Osaka! I will just be listing down the food that was really worth trying! Will try and be brief because I’m sure you guys will want to be the judge for the food yourself
Uncle Rikuro Cheesecake
Situated near the busiest street in Namba, you’ll find this crazily hyped up “jiggly cheesecake”. The cheesecake was indeed extremely jiggly, but also very eggy and very light so if you are expecting your cake to be similar to what a new york cheesecake would taste like, you’d be disappointed. Personally I thought it was perfect with a cuppa in the afternoon
I’ve talked about this before, and I will bring it up again this time. The sushi here is the bomb! Shop opens from 5.am and each plate of 5 sushi will cost you 1050 yen. So So So good,go early, otherwise be prepared to queue
Since we are on the topic of sushi, let’s talk about Anaba.This place does cheap+fresh sushi it’s awesome! The only downside is that it is completely catered to locals and you will need to at least be able to speak/read a little japanese before dropping them a visit. This full plate of sushi+ a glass of beer only cost me 2000yen! I look quite pale in the next photo but just had to put it in as a comparison of the sizes of sushi to my face
Japanese gyozas are my favs! There are a few places you could go, but the easiest and cheapest place for gyoza is Gyoza no Ohsho. They are cheap and plenty of outlets just laying around everywhere in Osaka so just google them up! If you are looking for a different kinda gyoza, do check out Tenpei Gyoza. This shop has been around since the 1955 and they do bit size gyozas. You can only order 20 pieces each time, and they will cost around 1500 yen per plate. It is extremely light, I wasn’t quite sure if I liked it because each bite wasn’t very fulfilling but it made me want for more but by the end of the meal, I was really satisfied with my gyozas!
You’ll find plenty of shops selling japanese curry but Jiyuken curry rice is def a much try! Not like your usual curry rice, this plate of rice is similar to a bowl of sticky rice curry. It probs won’t wow you away on your first bite but I think it is a very comforting meal!I personally loved it and would love to have it again especially on a cold winter night
