Japanese Night 5: Osaka Festival Food

I lived in different places in my nearly 3 years in Japan, but they were all around the large Kansai area that surrounds Osaka. Tokyo is amazing, but I feel Osaka is the heart and soul of Japan. Osaka is especially famous for its food and comedy. All the happy things!

Japanese nights are always the most popular, but I thought I would change it up a bit and highlight my favourite region. As you know, Japanese food is exploding in the London food scene. Okonomiyaki (savoury cabbage “pancake”) is the hot item right now and happens to be the “king” of Osakan food, but not everyone can eat it. So let’s change that!

Inspired by my love of Osaka, I now present:
