Top 5 Must-Eat Foods in Dotonbori!Walk around Food Paradise in Osaka

1.Dotonbori Akaoni/赤鬼

Akaoni There are many takoyaki restaurants in Dotonbori area, and I especially recommend Dotonbori Akaoni among them. There are two shops in dotonbori area.

Dotonbori Akaoni is a Takoyaki restaurant that was awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2016.

This shop was introduced by Japanese & international TV program many times.

They serve a variety of unique takoyaki dishes such as takoyaki soaked in a special soup, takoyaki with Kakigori(Kakigori is a Japanese summer desert made of shaved ice),and Takoyaki with melted cheese on top.

Takoyaki with Kakigori(summer special) is a really surprise for me, they created this dish so that customers can enjoy the takoyaki even in the summer.

The recommended item is Takoyaki with melted cheese on top.

You can enjoy the perfect harmony of fluffy takoyaki and melted cheese.

They believe fresh Octopus is the crucial factor of the takakoyaki, so they use raw octopus to make takoyaki whereas most of the takoyaki shops use the boiled one.

That makes their takoyaki specially tasty.

Takoyaki of Akaoni is a must-eat food when you come to Osaka!

2.551 Hourai Butaman Main Store

butaman 551 Hourai Butaman Main Store is one of the famous Butaman shop in Osaka.

A fluffy bun encasing minced pork and vegetable filling which are very juicy and flavorful.

There is another popular Butaman shop called “Futami”,Some locals say Futami’s butaman is better than Horai’s.

Futami’s butaman is sweeter than Horai’s because of flavor of cooked onion.

I like both of the Butman:)

Futami’s Butaman is located only in Namba, so why don’t you compare these two Butamans if you come to Namba?
