Tempura/Fried FoodPage: 1/2
“Senba Shinsaibashisuji Shotengai” is a shopping district packed with people.
It’s also a gourmet battlefield where delicious restaurants duke it out.
Our focus this time is “Ajiman,” a restaurant that’s been adored for over 50 years!
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.
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.”
“Ginza Bairin” is a famous tonkatsu restaurant that was founded in 1927. One of the reasons for its popularity is that its founder, a former pharmacist, developed the original chuno sauce (the sauce used on pork katsu).
I’ve been a big fan of this restaurant for many years now. This time, I’ll be introducing my recommended dishes that I enjoyed on this particular visit.
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!
In Japanese cuisine, the fried breaded pork cutlet called Tonkatsu is famous. Now a beef version of this dish, known as Gyukatsu, has been gaining attention, and a lot of eateries specializing in beef cutlets have appeared recently.
In Osaka's Dojima Chikagai (an underground shopping arcade), there's Kyoto Katsugyu, a restaurant that's always full of customers. I went there to have lunch!
Today I had lunch at “Tendon Ramen Hageten.”
It’s a new restaurant, made possible by a collaboration between tempura restaurant with 93 locations nation-wide “Ginza Hageten” and Fukuoka-originated global ramen brand “Ippudo.”
