Messe Kuma Umeda Branch

Stock up on carbohydrates with this set comprised of fluffy okonomiyaki, yakisoba, and curry!

For lunch we went to the Umeda branch of okonomiyaki restaurant “Messe Kuma” on Umesan street in Umeda.
It’s a popular store and there’s always a long line for lunch, so I was starving. Determined to ingest as many carbohydrates as possible, I ordered the NegiYakisoba set for \980 with the Curry Set for \150.
I received a thick okonomiyaki generously topped with onion, fried egg, and beef tendon konnyaku. This was served together with yakisoba, curry rice, and miso soup. The volume was incredible!


Cutting into the thick okonomiyaki….


The soft inside is tangled exquisitely with the sweet flavor of the cabbage and sauce!
This is truly first-rate okonomiyaki!


The yakisoba set is sure to satisfy one’s appetite


Slightly thick noodles…


The sauce has a slightly burnt flavor that’s wonderful!


Curry Rice and Miso Soup
The 150 yen price tag on this set is more than fair!


A nice, thick curry…


Full of thick beef tendon, sweetness and ‘umami’ are blended perfectly to create a western taste that everyone is sure to love!
After eating three carbohydrates I was so full that I thought my stomach would burst 🙂



They have many special sets!
At 1pm the line had died down, but the shop was full and the customers just kept on coming in!
The waitress was kind and thoughtful, and the environment was cozy!
If you want a casual place to enjoy okonomiyaki in Umeda then this is the place for you!
