You’re not visiting the usual haunts. Oh no, this time you’re going to the places the tourists don’t. Welcome to your food tour of Osaka.
    With your guide on hand to point out all the places, you know you are going to be in good hands. You’ll start in the bright and busy Dotonburi area. That’s where you’ll find Glico man and the giant crab! This street is full of overly-commercialised restaurants, do look but these aren’t the places you’re visiting. You are going local! You will sample some of Osaka’s favourite foods. Kushikatsu (deep fried meat with veggie skewers), Takoyaki (grilled octopus). Then you’ll travel down the narrow alleys, spot a bar or two. Where more culinary delights are to be had. Sukiyaki (simmering beef hotpot) and tempura to name two.
    Your tour doesn’t end there! There's more fun to be had. You’ll also be shown a famous building full of hidden unorthodox bars. We’re talking lots of them! So that once your guide had said farewell. Well, you can continue the adventure. Pick one and embrace.
