Osaka: A Food Paradise, Osaka, Japan (B)

Food is king in Osaka and there is no place better than Namba to surrender your stomach to the gastronomic kingdom. There’s even an expression used to describe Osaka’s obsession with food — “kuidaore,” to eat oneself into financial ruin. Here are some of the best spots in Namba to indulge your culinary obsession:

Dontonbori, Osaka’s most famous tourist destination, will incite all your senses! It’s best to go there at night to fully appreciate the extravagant signage and lit up store fronts advertising exactly what the restaurant is serving. The choices are dizzying. There are numerous restaurants, bars, and street food carts serving up seafood, beef, ramen, udon, sushi, and many other delectable Japanese food. One of the most popular restaurants in Dontonbori, Kani Doraku, has a giant moving crab on its storefront beckoning you to eat at the restaurant. It’s advisable to make reservations online or it can be a two hour wait!

If you don’t want to stress yourself out going to the popular restaurants, check out Tempura Suke that’s hidden along a small alley. It’s away from the crazy crowds and has set meals that are delicious and affordable. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
