Foodies coming to Osaka are recommended to reserve accommodation near areas such as Namba Station or Dotonbori Station so that it is more convenient to experience your food tour. Dotonbori consists of a series of streets along the Dotonbori Canal with the presence of hundreds of restaurants and entertainment services. Dotonbori is also endorsed by the Japanese with the nickname “Kuidaore”, meaning “eat until you go broke”. What an interesting idea, right? So, back to our topic, what are the must-try dishes in Osaka?

Sushi

Going to Osaka without trying Sushi, you are one of those hapless travelers. As a Sushi lover, I still remember the feeling of salmon sashimi melting in my mouth, the taste of freshness is so hard to describe by words.

You can enjoy Sushi at many restaurants in Osaka, a majority of them probably scatter around the area of Namba Station and Dotonbori Station. Most Sushi restaurants in Japan often serve on a conveyor belt where you eat and watch Sushi chefs prepare your food. If you like anything, just take it. You pay for what you eat. There are also many delicious sushi restaurants in Vietnam, but the menu and Sushi are not as rich and fresh as in Japan. Once, I saw a dish of dolphin Sushi and some other fish that I couldn’t have in Vietnam.

A special thing is that if you travel to Japan, you can visit Osaka and try the strangest food in the world: Pufferfish Sashimi. Pufferfish is famous for its poisonous deadly venom. But in Japan, pufferfish is a delicacy. There is even a chain of restaurants that only provide delicacies made from pufferfish: Fugu Guenpin restaurant chain, which has branches throughout major cities in Japan. In Osaka alone, this chain of restaurants has several stores, just so you know how popular pufferfish is in Japan.

In case you want to try Kobe beef, look for restaurants that offer Shabu Shabu, a famous Japanese hotpot dish. Compared to other dishes, Shabu Shabu has a relatively high price. However, there are many types of beef at different prices. Kobe beef is very famous, but it is not the most expensive.

Interestingly, even though it’s called hotpot, Shabu Shabu ‘s broth is actually water. Yes, it is purely water without any spice added. Japanese people are very uncomfortable to share their meals together, so each person will be served a separate hotpot, with a serving of noodles, vegetables and mushrooms and a serving of fresh beef on the side. It is really a healthy hotpot dish because there is no spice added so customers will have a better taste of the sweetness of beef, vegetables and mushrooms. Overall it is worth a try. What are you waiting for then?
