Burger Quest : Kuma Cafe

Hawaiian Burger @ Kuma Cafe

Hawaiian Beef Burger.

Early this summer A and I where on a quest to find good burger shop around Kansai and we started our quest at Kuma Cafe located in front of the famous Osaka Aquarium.

I ordered Hawaiian Burger and it was 1500yen. It was too big for me. It has a big beef patty and big slice of pineapple and of course French Fries.

The place is really comfy and spacious. We also had a chance to met and chat a little bit with the owner and chef Paul who is really nice and friendly.

So if you are around the area and looking for a good burger you know where to go 🙂

Curry Quest : Mitsukawa Steakhouse’s Curry

Lately, I have discovered that there are lots of curry places in Osaka and they are really good.  In this past months I’ve visited several of them and planning to visit more soon.

But first let me start with the store around my neighborhood.

Mistukawa has been in business for about 82 years in the same location. They are actually considered as one of the local family in Daito City. It used to be a meat shop but later on , they added a restaurant and a bar in the 2nd floor. Currently, the bar is gone and is also converted into a restaurant.

This is one of the first store T and I visited when we moved here in Daito City. After 4 years we decided to return and give it a try again and this time I found out that they also have curry. In a span of 2 weeks we visited this place twice and plan to visit again soon.

This first time I ordered their Special Curry (Beef) and omg it was amazing. There were several chunks of beef on it and it just melts into your mouth. The spiciness is just enough that it does not overwhelms the meat. It was really good.

The second time, the owner and chef (3rd generation) recommended dry curry with beef too. It was spicy too and good but I liked the Special Curry better.

If you ever visit Daito, I highly recommend either their Steak or curry here.

They are close 3rd Monday of the Month and every Tuesday.

Lunch Time: 11:30-15:00

Dinner Time: 17:00-21:00

You can makea reservation by calling: 072-872-0298.

Ramen : Fusuma ni Kakeru (フスマにかける)


Miss S, suggested this Ramen located in Nakazaki-cho. It was really good, very light for a ramen but still very tasty. Miss K and I basically finished everything even the soup.

According to Miss S, there is always a long line here specially during weekends so if you have time on weekday it might be better. We went Wednesday, we got a table for 3 and did not need to wait. Although as soon as we got there, the whole place was occupied.

It’s less than a minute away from Nakazakicho Station Exit 1 or probably about 15 -20  minutes Osaka/Umeda Station.

Ramen : Muteppou (無鉄砲)

Muteppou (無鉄砲)

This ramen is simply amazing. The soup is so thick and the noodles just perfect. I can’t imagine the calorie per bowl, but it’s heavenly. I tried the regular Tonkatsu and it was more than enough for me.

If you are in Osaka, just head out to Daikukocho Station ( Yostubashi/Midosuji) Line and get out in Exit 3. Turn to your right and just walk straight. It’s about 3 minutes walk from the exit. They also have branches in Nara, Kyoto, Tokyo and Sydney.

Tomato Ramen : Tomato no Sato (トマトの里)

A few years ago, my former boss took us to a tomato ramen near the office and I remembered we have to wait in line but it was worth it.  The only thing I remembered about the store is that it was/is near Awaza Station.

Searching through tabelog, I found it. So one cold Wednesday evening, together with 3 other Ramen lover, we searched and look for the place.

The shop owner gave us an extra slice of meat too, although he did told us to keep our voice down, I guess he did not like us talking in English. The ramen is really good.

It’s about 2 minutes walk from Exit 1 of Chuo Line Awaza Station.
