There are lots to choose from the picture menu, including veg options, but the tokusen mikkusu yaki (mixed okonomiyaki with fried pork, shrimp and squid; ¥1080) is a classic. Look for red and white signage out frontv”

“Head downstairs to this spirited, friendly izakaya for standards such as skewered meats, seafood, vegies fresh off the grill and giant pieces of tori no karaage (fried chicken). The best seats are at half-round counters, where your chef will serve you using a loooong paddle. Most dishes are ¥324. It's on the street along the west side of Hankyū Umeda Station, to the left of the signage featuring a guy wearing a headband.”

“Yamachan Yamachan is one of the most popular takoyaki restaurants in Osaka, where the dish originated. What makes Yamachan’s takoyaki distinctive is the taste of the dough, which blends original chicken soup stock cooked with various fruits and vegetables, and Japanese style soup of kelp and bonito. Cooked on its special takoyaki pan at a very high temperature, the outside of the takoyaki ball is crisp but the inside remains nice and creamy. Although it is tasty without any sauce, you can also try it with their special soy sauce and ponzu.
