In the famous foodie capital of Japan, you will be able to find an outstanding Osaka restaurant in every corner of the city. The excitable energy of Osaka is fueled by its thriving food culture and restaurants in every district. The city center of Namba’s okonomiyaki restaurants sizzle away all day, filled with happy diners laughing out in Kansai-dialect late into the night ("kampai!"). Dotombori bustles almost 24 hours a day, alive with its street food stalls (takoyaki octopus balls grilling away) while "tabehoudai" all-you-can-eat restaurants call out for diners to take on the challenge. Feeling really adventurous? You can find fugu restaurants in Osaka serving up ""deadly"" pufferfish. The Shinsekai district's neon lights highlight the golden crusts of deep-fried skewers at its local kushikatsu restaurants. If you want a break from morish Kansai cuisine, find fresh sushi sliced and served up at sushi trains and specialty high-end sushi restaurants in Osaka.
Without a doubt, the city of Osaka absolutely lives and breathes food. The number of restaurants in Osaka is a testament to the city’s catch phrase of "kuidaore," which encourages "eating until you drop"!
