I decided to grab lunch at “Irori to Kamameshi Shizuru,” located in Dojima, an office town in Osaka. Their famous kamameshi (a rice, meat, and vegetable dish served in a small pot) is only available on weekdays and it’s supposed to be very affordably priced.
In business for over 120 years, “Tsukiji Miyagawa Honten” is famous for its historic unagi (eel). This is the main location for the “Miyagawa” restaurants scattered across Japan. This is where I decided to enjoy a somewhat luxurious unagi lunch.
Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture is well known for its unique cuisine known as Nagoya meshi. My favourite dish is, hands down, their miso-nikomi udon (thick udon noodles stewed in miso broth)! I couldn’t wait to head to one of the area’s most recommended miso-nikomi udon shops: Yamamotoya Honten. They have a number of locations, but I decided to visit their Esca shop which is situated under Nagoya Station.
I recently had lunch at Ginza Kashiwa, a restaurant that opened in April of 2018. Here, diners can enjoy Hinai-Jidori, a premium brand of chicken from Akita Prefecture. It's considered one of the three tastiest varieties of chicken in Japan!
A Taste of a Classic Kyoto Restaurant in Tokyo Midtown’s Hibiya, “Nanzenji Hyotei Hibiya Store”Read Later
Hyotei is a long-standing historic restaurant on the grounds of Kyoto’s Nanzen-ji Temple. Established roughly 450 years ago, it started out as a teahouse.
It is well-known for its soft-boiled eggs, known as “Hyotei Tamago,” and its breakfast porridge.
Hyotei opened a new location in Tokyo Midtown’s Hibiya in March of 2018, so I made a reservation and stopped by for lunch.
I decided to have lunch at “PUBLIC KITCHEN café Minamisenba Store,” a cute popular café in Osaka.
Here you can enjoy healthy dishes made with organic vegetables from “PUBLIC KITCHEN organic farm,” a plantation in Hyogo Prefecture’s Tamba City.
Mention Minami-Uonuma in Niigata Prefecture, and rice will come to the mind of most Japanese. Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari is famous as Japan's top brand of rice, prized for its exceptional taste. When it was suggested that restaurants in this town make their biggest rice bowls made with Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari, top-class chefs rose to the challenge, offering their own versions of Majidon, or "serious" rice bowls!
If you’re looking for a great lunch around Abeno, an area around Tennoji in Osaka, then you absolutely should check this place out! I’ve heard that sort of high praise about this restaurant several times, so I decided to stop by “Hannari Tennoji Store” for lunch!
This restaurant offers traditional Kyoto home cooking, “obanzai.”
