The speed at which a restaurant wins a Michelin star can broadly be taken as a metric of quality. The judges wasted no time in picking up on Yonemasu, one of the best kaiseki restaurants in all of Osaka.
Here the 12-course set features some outstanding takes on classic dishes, including horse mackerel with cucumber, fresh local fruit yogurts, and a range of seasonal vegetables wrapped in physalis leaves.
Reservation demand has skyrocketed since the very first week of opening, and it’s been very difficult to land a spot ever since. Consider planning well in advance if you want to add Yonematsu to your Japanese culinary itinerary.
