This 3-hour Osaka Night Food Tour will take you on an unforgettable eating excursion through the less frequented parts of Minami (South) Osaka. Similar to Shibuya (its counterpart in Tokyo) the lights and sounds of Dotounburi often lead you astray to commercialized restaurants with queues of tourists outside while we want to take our guests to places they would certainly miss without a local’s guidance. Quickly darting from the crowd, we will take a secret alley not long after we begin the tour toward the shrines wedged out of sight from the average passerby. We will sample , Kushikatsu, (deep fried meat and veggie skewers) a local take on Yakitori and we will surprise you with a Michelin rated street food stop for Osaka’s favorite snack– Takoyaki! (a kind of grilled octopus fritter). Your guide will then lead you to a local dinner spot. This shop is an Izakaya or local pub with seasonal dishes that will intrigue and delight. You will enjoy yakitori (grilled skewers), sukiyaki (a delicious simmered beef hotpot), tempura and fresh local veggies and 1 drink. This spot is very local, you will not find tourists here! From there, we will show you a famous building full of hidden unorthodox bars, one after another. Finally finish off with a tasty local street food dessert! As you say farewell to your guide you can explore more on your own in this fascinating part of town.
