FOOD & DRINK

Welcome to Japan’s kitchen! Hope you’re hungry because there is no better place than Osaka to EAT & DRINK!


Osaka takes food to a whole new level with delicious takoyaki, okonomiyaki and kushikatsu just about everywhere you look! And these dishes are only the beginning! If you’re not yet familiar with the term kuidaore, meaning to eat oneself into financial ruin, you definitely will be after spending a few days here. But don’t let kuidaore give you the wrong idea. There are tons of affordable and even cheap foods for those in Osaka on a budget. If you know where to look you’ll find Michelin Star quality – food stalls, cafes, and mom & pop shops at none of the price. So come with us, as we go in search of the best FOOD & DRINK in Osaka!
