If a single word was used to describe Japan, it would be the word ‘mesmerising’ and all the synonyms that belong to it.
The people were charming, the landscape was captivating, the culture was enchanting and the food (*inserts a big sigh of love*) the food was absolutely spellbinding.
My love affair with Dōtonbori started as soon as I caught a glimpse of the bright lights and the whiff of food circulating from the street vendors. Time slowed down, but my heartbeat quicken as I wandered from store to store, enamoured by all the food on the menus. The hardest decisions were, what was I going to eat and how was I going to fit it all in.
From takoyaki to ramen, this is a sample of my food journey through Dōtonbori in Osaka.
Have you been to Osaka? If so, where is your favourite place to eat?
In love and food,
