Review excerpt: Kushiage, udon, kinmedai — Whatever is served at Beignet, you’re in for a treat.
Review excerpt: For a savory dish at Hood by Vargas, try its New York beef sandwich — it’s small, but packs a lot between the toasted slices of bread.
Review excerpt: As Bistro de Yoshimoto's name suggests, and as the nonstop soundtrack of accordion music makes abundantly clear, the setting and the fare is undeniably French.
Review excerpt: Critters Burger is home to the best burgers in Osaka. Tabelog, the restaurant listings website, had Critters in its top 100 burger shacks in Japan for 2017.
Review excerpt: On paper, the setting for Liaison, a French-inspired restaurant that’s on the upmarket end of eateries of the ward, is ordinary.
Review excerpt: Inside Taiwan Tanpao, it’s a one-stop shop: It’s shōronpō dumplings or bust. But even with such a limited menu there is much to enjoy.
Review excerpt: As well as being small, Sushi Chiharu is busy. That’s because for ¥2,800, this is one of the best-value sushi lunches in Osaka.
