DESTINATIONS japan osaka Dining Gataro


Hidden under the Hankyu railway is this cozy, superior izakaya (Japanese-style pub-restaurant). They serve grilled fish prepared whilst you wait, and it´s highly recommended. Unlike most Izakaya, this one has an English menu.


Due to its fertile land and close proximity to the sea, Osaka has always produced a copious amount of delicious ingredients. A particularly popular dish in Osaka is "Okonomi-yaki", a Japanese style pancake that contains a combination of meat, seafood, and vegetables, all covered in a tasty sauce. Take a seat in an Izakaya, the Japanese version of a pub, and try "Takoyaki" – balls of wheat batter containing octopus.
