Osaka Street Food Tour with Bamboo Travel
By: Bamboo Travel
One of the city's sayings, Kuidaore, means 'to eat yourself to ruin', and there are no shortages of options in Osaka for those wishing to put this philosophy to the test!
The new, fun, street food tour, goes through Osaka's vibrant Namba District, starting with the bright lights of Dotonburi.
This is the heart of Namba and home to a vast array of restaurants and street food stalls. Marvel at the neon-lined streets and stop for a picture with the iconic 'Glico Running Man' before diving in to try some of the multitude of food options.
Some of the food you will have the chance to sample on this tour include Takoyaki, which are Osaka's famous 'octopus balls' (and not to be missed!) and Kushikatsu, which are deep-fried skewered meats and vegetables.
There will also be an opportunity to experience a true local Osakan experience at an Izakaya, which is a traditional pub/casual restaurant which serves a range of dishes.
