Osaka #3.3

Then since we had Okonomiyaki, we decided we should at least give that big attraction a shot. How can we be here and not try out what is the iconic restaurant of Dotonburi?

Kani Doraku

So our crab feast begins!!!

Cold Snow Crab

Kani(Crab) Cream Croquette -so so

Crab Hot Pot

after the end of the hot pot, they put in rice to the soup, so its like a crab soup porridge with all the crab essence - SUPER SHIOKS

and last but not least, ending off the meal with:

Matcha Ice-cream/ Ice cream in Matcha?

This was just awesome! We booked our dinner for here tomorrow night! We just died and went to crab heaven! The crabs were so fresh and sweet!! No signs of smelly seafood taste! just pure awesomeness

Osaka #3.2

We explored the whole of Shinsaibashi, a shopping area .. I was walking around and found

Chestnut puff thingy! looks like its going to flyyy!!! 🙂

That was just awesomeness it its own! and i sighted this:

HUGE Kit Kat only store

The Japanese really take their sweets very seriously!

Then we headed back towards the Namba area to satisfy my dad’s craving. His whole purpose of coming to Osaka- just to fulfil his aim that he has been watching from television: to experience eating the real Okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is this Japanese style of ‘pancake’, filled with vegetables and include toppings like tako(octopus), squid, etc . So since its one of Osaka’s trademark food, we decided to go try out this chain of them at shinsaibashi called Chibo



O-O OOOkonomiyaki

We all came out smelling like we were fried okonimiyaki-ed. .. But nonetheless, my dad was super thrilled and happy he managed to get what he wanted.

Osaka: #3.1

My parents love visiting the market, ever since visiting the last Nishiki Market in Kyoto. So we headed down to Osaka’s one called Kuromon Ichiba Market.

Then, it was lunch time .. we were walking around and through the lanes ( you know how sometime you split up in a group and meet at meal times, and it takes time to relocate everyone again especially when most are hp-less) .. and I must say this is one of the BEST RAMEN yet!

Owner of the shop

The shop is really small.. like my family of 5 took up 1/2 the sittings!

BEST ramen ever eaten for this trip!!! super shioks times 10 ♥ ♥


Handmade Chicken balls

So what distinguishes this ramen from the rest? the owner of the shop takes alot of pride in his work and charcoal grills individually EACH PIECE OF CHARSIEW! and it has that charred taste, topped off with the rich broth and molten Eggs! There were hiddden chicken balls to go along with the ramen!  I am so going to come back here the next time I visit Osaka!!!
