Local tells Top 5 best Takoyaki restaurants in Osaka!


Tamaya I know this takoyaki restaurant since the opening.

When I had this Takoyaki for the first time,I was surprised because it was so so good.

The secret of the taste is they use lobster for stock.

I’ve had many Takoyaki in Osaka. So far Tamaya is the best Takoyaki restaurant in Osaka. The soup broth is made from lobster. That makes their takoyaki so special.

There are 5 kinds of sauce, Curry, Soy sauce, Ponzu(Citrus sauce),Sauce and Salt. I recommend you to choose salt.

3.Dotonbori Akaoni/道頓堀 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!
