Yokozuna Restaurant Shinsekai - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Yokozuna Restaurant, Shinsekai, Osaka

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!

Syoda Ebisu Restaurant Shinsekai - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Syoda Ebisu Restaurant, Shinsekai, Osaka

If you’re in Osaka and you love Japanese traditional food, besides the mandatory visit to Dotonbori, you should also visit the Shinsekai district. It’s a very colorful place, the restaurants have huge billboards (some of them similar to the ones from Dotonbori) and since we are here very close to the Tsutenkaku Tower, many of the businesses are displaying at least one statue of Biliken, the Japanese God from America.

But Biliken is not the only god featured here, here is one spectacular restaurant billboard representing Ebisu, one of the 7 Lucky Gods, very popular among the people working in the Japanese food industry. The restaurant, Syoda Ebisu, is serving kushi-katsu, a local delicacy for which the Shinsekai is best known: vegetables or pieces of meat (chicken, pork or seafood) skewered on a bamboo stick (kushi) and dipped in flour, eggs and bread crumbs (panko). Very tasty!
