The Real Thing

If you are a lover of regular Japanese street food, the kind you find in Kansai dives, then this is the place for you. The Okonomiyaki is delicious, the takoyaki like you would find in the subway stations in Kobe. The yakisoba not quite as good. The place is tiny, so it is best to go on a sunny warm day when you want to eat outside. The staff is warm and friendly with a Japanese girl who speaks Sapnish!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
