There are so many takoyaki restaurant in Namba so it was hard for me to choose one. Takoyaki restaurants like Wanaka,Kougayu or Akaoni etc. They are all good!
But Takoyakikun ranked No1 by customer’s review.
The secret of it’s popularity is tempura bits. It makes Takoyaki crispy and tasty.Besides you can add the toppings like sauce,mayo,dried bonito and green laver as much as you want.Once you eat it, you will be hooked on this taste.

New Munchen was stablished in 1971.It has been loved by locals as one of the best Karaage(Japanese deep-flied chicken) restaurant in Osaka. Karaage here is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
The combination of Karaage and Beer is just perfect!! It’s a shame that Karaage in New Muhchen is not well known for foreign tourists.
