2. Osaka Cuisine Asai (おおさか料理 淺井)
Osaka Cuisine Asai is a one Michelin starred Japanese restaurant, offering approx 150 different culinary creation dishes.
Fresh and seasonal ingredients are picked every morning by the chef at Kuromon Market, the biggest wholesale market in Osaka City, and their menu is created based on today’s seasonal ingredients everyday.
The restaurant serves various course meals and a la carte menu. There are 3 types of “Omakase” course (chef’s choice), which is recommended to whom wishes to have standard Japanese dishes, and a special course can also be served with an advance booking. It’s a slightly higher price but highly worthy.
Nabe course (hot pot dish) is also one of most popular things on the menu, serving seasonal ingredients such as Pike conger and Snappers in Shabu Shabu style during summer, and Osaka’s traditional “Tecchiri” (hot pot dish with Pufferfish) during winter.
