Our recommendations in Tokisushi are Toki Yaki (which comes with 10 exceptional pieces slightly scorched on top), Toro (the fatty meat of tuna), Uni (sea urchin) and Torigai (Japanese egg cockle) which all cost only 158 yen each. As a matter of fact, this place sets the price of all sushi plates as 158 yen which gives you peace of mind in one of the most expensive countries in the world. Enjoy!

If you want to have "the real local experience", Sushigin might be good for you.  There are only few seats available and no bathrooms so staying long is not recommended.  But once you enter and sit on the counter table, you will be surprized of the quality as well as the varieties of their sushi toppings.  They are all fresh and tasty and you can even order Fugu (the globefish) in here. Our recommendations here are Unagi (eel), Ika (Squid), and big Ebi (shrimp), and perhaps Hakusai (cabbage) sushi at the end.  It's worth trying!

The lady in this restaurant draws an excellent snoopy portrait and Osaka Tsu-Tenkaku Tower with the mayonaise on the surface of okonomiyaki!  We like their playful mind while having a meal, but what we like more is the taste of "Okonomiyaki Gokujo" menu which you must choose 2 toppings from the list (shrimp, squid, pork, etc).  You can have those fresh toppings inside your okonomiyaki and their vaunted sweet flavoured sauce on the surface.  Yummy.  You will see why this restaurant has its history of more than 60 years.

The well known ramen shop JouRoku is extremely difficult to find for newcomers as it is located on a very narrow street out of no where.  But if you can find this ramen shop successfully using Picrumb, you can have their legendary ramen that many locals highly evaluate.  When you go inside JouRoku, order the most popular menu called the "Chuka soba" and wait till they bring you their vaunted black ramen.  The black ramen in JouRoku is using few types of soy sauce and mixture of fish, chicken and pork bone based for the ingredients of the soup.  Then they boil it for a long time before they serve it to customers.  It is simply the best local ramen in town.

If you find a signboard that says "no strong perfumes and no talking on the phone inside", that's where Ganko Ramen Juhachidaime is and that you are at the right place for having delicious ramen in Namba.  We recommend you to try the shio ramen (salt based ramen) with negi (leek) flavour in Ganko with markedly soft chashu pork on top.  Ganko (stubborn) as they are, the taste of their ramen has a strong faith and deepness.  Be ready for having the real local ramen where you can't even make phone calls!!
