I would be one of the first to say that that you can find good sushi anywhere in Japan. Still, among the best, there is a gold standard. I think I stumbled on a few of them in Osaka.
Apologies if there aren’t any photos! I was so distracted by the delicious fare. I forgot about my phone. So isn’t that the real sign that the food is simply the best out there?
I asked a few locals about their favorite sushi spot in Osaka, and Harukoma Sushi came out as a top pick. This restaurant is at the longest shopping street in Osaka, Tenjinbashisuji Shotengai.
It’s just the best way to end your shopping spree. Work up an appetite with the best of Osaka’s fashion and beauty picks, then indulge in a large sushi platter here.
Sourcing from local markets every day, you will only get what’s fresh and in season from Nakanoya Lucua. Their specialty platters which change almost daily due to what available at the market are what they are known for. You’ll love the ambiance here as it has a non-smoking policy, a drink-all-you-can option, and even igloo-style private rooms.
A must-visit when at the Osaka Central Fish Market. The location is perhaps the reason this restaurant is the place which serves good sushi at rame prices. It also has quite some history to it: Endo Sushi has been around since 1907. Try to do good on your timing when you visit though as there is only a 33-seat capacity in this restaurant.
