Mediterranean Restaurant
$$
“Friendly and trendy, near the western edge of Ame-Mura, Absinthe serves fantastic cocktails, non-alcoholic drinks and juices and a rare (for Japan) Mediterranean menu (falafel, hummus and babaganoush, plus pastas and pizzas). It's a tad pricey, but you're paying for quality ingredients, stylish surrounds and laid-back atmosphere; sliding doors create a sidewalk cafe vibe, weather permitting. And, yes, it does serve absinthe.”

“The name means 'chicken nobility', but prices at this popular Osaka-based yakitori chain are decidedly for regular folk. Look for the yellow and red sign and the number 280 (the price of all the generously portioned grilled skewers, plus tax), then climb the narrow stairs to the dining room with booths separated by untreated wood slats, and streaming J-pop hits. ”

“Real Napolitana Pizza with a Japanese twist. This restaurant only has counter seats and you order by buying a meal-ticket from the vending machine at the entrance. Some of the best pizza in Osaka and at a very reasonable price too. Also good for take-out.”
