From traditional cheap eats like okonomiyaki savory pancakes to the unique flavor of Osakan udon noodles, you’ll get to taste a variety of local favorites. Ura Namba’s streets are lined with handcrafted furniture stores, and this ancient tradition fuses with cuisine in the form of hakozushi, a local sushi variant presented in dainty wooden boxes. At izakayas like Dondobi, hot sake meets an array of local chicken delicacies, like yakitori barbeque, while nearby Torame Yokocho is perhaps Osaka’s most famous street food alleyway of all, stocked full anomalies like Italian-Japanese fusion foods and deep-fried kushikatsu skewers. Whether you’re craving stir fry or sweet treats, your expert host will make sure you eat like a local!
For decades, Ura Namba has been one of Osaka’s liveliest working-class neighborhoods, but a recent surge in popularity - thanks to plenty of television coverage and easy access from downtown Osaka - has turned this humble district into a vortex of neon lights, tachinomiya standing bars and narrow, delicacy-stuffed walkways that epitomize Osaka’s status as the Nation’s Kitchen. In fact, it may be the best-kept culinary secret in the entire city! Hole-in-the-wall eateries, quirky bars and European fusion restaurants are all on the menu here, and your local host will guide you to the best spots to grab everything from sake to sushi, with plenty of okonomiyaki pancakes and takoyaki snack balls in between. Ready? Let’s eat!
