Dotonburi, whether it’s a week day night or a weekend, the place is always crowded. Everywhere you turn, the shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and even the food stalls are full of people. On our first night in Osaka, we made sure to visit this place first. It’s a very popular place, not just for the locals, but for tourists as well. They always say that, you’ve never really experienced real food in one place unless you try their street food. So, here’s what we had at Namba Walk.
Ramen was first on our list. We had to wait on queue for 45 minutes for their famous Shoyu Ramen. It was worth the wait, though. I don’t know about you, but Japanese food is L.O.V.E. for me. I’ve been to Japan many times and have tried many restaurants and I don’t recall having experienced a so-so food in Tokyo. Is it just my love for Japanese food?
We also had Chicken Karaage with our Ramen.
In one of the side streets of Namba Walk, there’s this Torikara Stick stall. It’s similar to our chicken fingers and you can choose your sauce, plus they give you a garlic powder sprinkle. Go easy on the sprinkle because it’s a tad salty.
Gelato! These are the flavors we tried…
Italian Marron (Chestnut). This is a must try!
And wherever you are in Japan, you shouldn’t miss the famous Takoyaki. It’s very far from what we have here in Manila. Theirs is not starchy, has no fishy taste and the octopus is very tender.
Steak on a stick!
Fried Chicken and Potato
Steak, Tempura, Sake and Beer booth
There were more, but I wasn’t able to take photos of them as the street were full of people. Street food is big in Japan and everything is yummy. Remember, you don’t always have to try out the pricey restaurants and cafes to fill your tummies. Everything is expensive in Japan, but you can already satisfy your food cravings through their street food.
