Today we decided to go to get some deep fried death and we just so happen to choose this restaurant. There was a line outside which is usually a good sign so needless to say I was excited. So I drank water and ginger ale...More

They have a menu in english. The staff is very friendly. There was able a 30 minute wait outside and a 5 minute wait inside. Definitely worth the wait. You can get a set menu or order individual pieces.

Whenever I visit Osaka, I always drop by here, Hozenji ten. It's not the center of Namba, but I like Hozenji street's style.

"Deep fried skewers" is one of many famous Osaka cuisine. Some people may expect this to be heavy and oily but this restaurant take deep fried to a next level. The skewers are covered with crispy flour and you don't feel the greasiness from them....More

Kushi-katsu is one of the famous local food in Osaka. Although these are deep fried in oil, you can try quite a few of those. I mean each skewer is not too big and just in good size. There are quite a lot of things...More

This is a style of fried Japanese food held on stickers. Unlike tempura it's mainly designed for meaty stuff ( you can find almost everything battered and fried there). Restaurant is organised on set menus at different price levels, but you can also order single...More
