Osaka was our last stop in the Japan trip and we found it as being way livelier than Kyoto but also tamer than Tokyo. There are many great things to do, visit, eat and shop. Here’s the places where we ate during our 3-day stay!
Daiki Suisan. After 2 weeks in Japan, we finally went to a revolving sushi place. The plates where as cheap as 100 Yen (without tax which is 8%) and could go as far as 500 Yen for one piece. That was the place where I had the best tuna of my life and I would love some recommendations of Lxuembourg restaurants serving such high quality tuna. The drinks were also affordable. I took a melon soda which was 150Yen, and there is hot water and matcha powder for free.
Yayoiken. What I loved in Japan were those restaurants where you could place your order on a vending machine, and then you would have a seat and give the ticket with your order to the waitress. Yayoiken was one of those places, with delicious food – I had this set meal for under 1,000 Yen, which is less than 10E. I had a hot pot with beef and vegetables, a bowl of rice, a bowl of hot miso soup and a raw egg (where you would dip the meat). The food was delicious, and the service was flawless.
Asahi beer restaurant. On the last day we had some time to kill in Osaka in between checking out from the hotel and going to the airport for our flight, which was a good few hours. They had a wide range of meat dishes – I took a small steak and my husband took cold beef on chopped onion. Both were really delicious.
Good Provision. This was actually an American & European restaurant on one of the last floors in the Umeda train station. I initially wanted to go for some Japanese steak they were offering, but ended up having a Caesar’s salad and my husband had a burger. The view of the area was beautiful at night and the food was delicious. As always with Japan, the service was flawless.
Café le pin. As Osaka was the last stop in our Japan trip, we were kind of tired of walking and exploring for the past 2 weeks. So we kind of chilled more, like we did in Café le pin in Hankyu Umeda, one of the many shopping centres of Osaka. It was rather expensive compared to other cafés, but same price as any good café in Luxembourg. The coffee was delicious and the fruits in my husband’s cake were tasting like real fruits.
