Chronicles of Osaka Part 4 of 5: Osaka on a Shoestring Budget? Street/Market Food Trip!


Osaka is also known for it's street food! This is perfect for those who are on a budget and don't really want to splurge on food. Exploring the food stalls and street food helps you understand the culture deeper... interacting directly with the vendors, seeing the whole process of preparing and cooking the dish, etc. The whole experience just brings you to another level that a restaurant dining experience can't give you. I am quite adventurous when it comes to this so I absolutely love doing food crawls on the street. Sharing with you some of Osaka and Kyoto's well known street food; 


Grilled King Crab Legs at Dotomburi
2 big pieces for 700 yen


Takoyaki literally means fried or grilled octopus or it’s also commonly known as  “octopus balls” .They are dumplings made from a special batter and filled with bits of octopus, pickled ginger and green onions. They are fried on a special cast-iron pan which retains it’s sphere round shape. You will find in almost every corner in the busy streets of Dotonburi and Shinsaibashi

Takoyaki Balls
6 balls for 450 yen

Chutoro at Kuromon Market
One pack is about 900 yen

Soy Donuts from the Kuromon Market
Yummy and healthy (though it is still deep fried) snack


Japanese Pancake with Red Bean Filling

Seared Scallops with Teriyaki Glaze at the Kuromon Market



 Takossisso with octopus and perilla at the Nishiki Market (Kyoto)
Imagine a huge Octopus ball with shiso leaves...very unique and interesting flavor. It will definitely excite your palate. 



Grilled Baby Octopus with Quail Egg (head) at the Nishiki Market


Vanilla and Green Tea Soft Serve Ice Cream
350 yen per cone



There you go! My top street food and delicacy picks in Osaka and Kyoto! Enjoy and Happy Sunday!



Cheers,
Pattie
