Where Can We Get Full in Osaka, Japan? Big Chicken on Rice


TAKOSHU (タコシュー)

One of Onegai Kaeru team members went around Tokyo in search of cheap and big food when he was a hungry and poor student. He went to many of the all u can eat restaurants in Japan. Food is very important part of trip. You do not want to fail at it. 


Japan is known for small and expensive food. If you are a foreign traveler in Japan, you may be already starving to death by now. Despite the bad economy, price hike is serious in Japan. We do not get full at Yoshinoya or Sukiya these days. Even the biggest size of beef bowl feels like a normal portion. We need a big and cheap food.


Continued from the previous "Where can we get FULL in Kyoto", we will further introduce some restaurant and cafe where you can eat cheap and a lot. 

Please note that these places may have their rules about the food such as if you can not finish eating it, you may need to pay some penalty. Please order with caution!


Osaka is well-known for cheap food. Can we find the best of best? One trick to find a great place is to find a university and search for a dirty/old looking restaurant nearby. You look inside and if you see many student looking peeople looking happily and eating, it is a good sign. This Takoshu is very close to Kinki (it is a real name of the univ!) university, Osaka.

What to order

Tori-don Giga Mori  (とり丼ギガ盛り)

620 JPY


You can order extra mayo. If you order this, you will get a lot of rice. Thus, it is recommended to order extra fried chickens too. Btw, the amount is lethal! The price is amazing.
