Izakaya2 Hi,I’m Keiko from Osaka!

If you want to experience the authentic local culture, one of the best places to do so is izakaya.

Izakaya is a Japanese bar/pub, where people love to gather for a drink (or more) after work to wind down with friends and co-workers.

An izakaya is a great place for you to sample a variety of delicious Japanese food without breaking your wallet.

There are various types of izakaya in Japan and the local characters tend to really come out, so izakaya-hopping would be a great experience for you.

Be warned, sometimes, it gets a bit loud and crazy there!

But that’s a part of the fun at an izakaya.

Here are top 5 izakaya restaurants in Osaka.

Local tells Top 5 best Izakaya restaurants in Osaka!

1.Dining Ajito/ダイニング あじと

Dining Ajito at Namba gets the best ingredients from all over Japan.

That is why this izakaya is at par with any high-end restaurant in Osaka as far as the food goes.

It is an authentic casual dining place where you can enjoy a top-notch cuisine.

Some of their popular dishes include oven baked onions, tsukune (grounded chicken balls), and their beef dishes.

In addition to drinking a few drinks at night, visit Ajito for lunch, especially if you are a meat lover.

You can indulge yourself with juicy steak or other tender prime cuts at an extremely reasonable price.

For example, you can have a good volume of sirloin steak perfectly cooked, dipped in Ajito’s special steak sauce over a bed of rice only for ¥1,500.

You can’t get that quality with this price anywhere else.

But be ready to be in a long line for their lunches.

They are located a few minutes away from Namba station.
