The 3 hopeful new face restaurant at Kitashinchi in Osaka

Most restaurants in Kitashinchi were long-established, because of having a long history from Edo era. But, nowadays, a little bit change happens. many new face restaurants open in Kitashinchi and serve lunch cheaply. The aim of serving lunch cheaply is to make the restaurants known to customers.

3.Korean barbeque restaurant”Meimon tanichi” 

This is a Korean barbeque restaurant at night but daytime is a Japanese set meal restaurant. Atmosphere in the restaurant is absolutely Japanese style. All dinning rooms are private. 

▼Big private dinning room(we use it with two people.)

▼Good design flower in the room.

Nowadays, many Japamese restaurants become no smoking but, this restaurant is smoking OK. Smoke comes out when grilling meat, so cigarettes smoke is no problem.

Lunch menus are 9 types, and all cow’s meat.If you are not full when finish eating lunch, you can order additional meat. 

▼Lunch menu

I orderd Japanese cow’s Hitsumabushi which is chopped broiled cow over rice. In many cases, Hitsumabushi includes soup stock. You can pour it on the Hitsumabushi.

It’s very high quality Hitsumabushi because salty-sweet sauce goes well with rice and meat. When you eat with soup stock, you can add Japanese pepper, Wasabi, dried seaweed to Hitsumabushi. This is also very delicious.


It’s also very higher quality and cheaper lunch. Lunch at Kitashinchi is good deal, so you may want to go if you go to Osaka.
