Japan is renowned for its restaurants… there are many fancy and expensive restaurants, but for the regular traveler they are not very important. What is really important is the great number of regular priced restaurants and the fact that this is one of the few countries where you can eat at any restaurant and you don’t have to worry about the food and the cleanness. Plus, you can be sure that you will be served with the utmost care…
The area of restaurants from Shisekai, near the Tsutenkaku Tower in Osaka, is a good example of a neighborhood filled with inexpensive restaurants with good food, like the one from my photo, called Yokozuna. Here you can taste a great variety of kushikatsu (katsu is a deep-fried meat cutlet, and kushi means “skewers"). If you don’t want meat, you can also try kushikatsu variants with mushrooms, seafood or vegetables (potato, onion, pumpkin), served as is or with tonkatsu sauce. Delicious!
