The first Omu-rice in Japan! “Hokkyokusei Shinsaibashi main branch” established in Osaka in 1922!Read Later
This restaurant is located in the Shinsaibashi area of Osaka near Dotonbori. There is a section of Shinsaibashi called Amerika-Mura. It is a trendy area for the young generation. In Amerika-Mura there is a traditional Japanese house that captures everyone`s eyes.
It is Osaka’s well known restaurant “Hokkyokusei”. This restaurant was established in 1922.
Hokkyokusei is an Omu-rice speciality shop with more than 10 locations in department stores throughout Osaka.
I went to eat lunch at the Hokkyokusei Shinsaibashi main branch.
“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!
Kitashinchi in Osaka is an area packed with fine dining, but many of the restaurants here offer lunch at affordable prices too. This time, I had lunch at “Okonomi Teppan Noki.”
“Kobe beef Teppanyaki Rio” is located in Umeda, the heart of Osaka. It is a teppanyaki restaurant that primarily serves Kobe beef, so it tends to be a bit on the pricey side, but if you visit for lunch you can enjoy a great meal for around just 1000 yen.
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.
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.
In Kyoto, there is Kyo-Ichi Honten, a cafeteria established in 1948.
With the motto of Umai, Hayai, Yasui, or "tasty, fast and cheap", this working-class eatery has been loved by the locals for many years.
Here, you can eat noodles and rice bowl dishes for around ¥700.
