“NABANA Umeda Store” at Osaka Ekimae 3rd Building
I had dinner at “NABANA Umeda Store” , an izakaya (Japanese bar) located at the 32nd floor of the Osaka Ekimae 3rd Building.
Being on the 32nd floor gives it a wonderful overlooking view and is popular for it!
“Super Express Squid Sugatamori (raw squid dish with head and tail)” (¥1350)
This was one surprisingly big squid!
It was sticky, full and rich with flavor! Delicious!
You don’t have to eat the entire squid as raw sashimi. They can cook it for you into “Tempura,” “Grilled with Salt,” and “Buttered Stir-fry!”
And of course, there is no cooking fee!
You can enjoy a variety of flavors!
“Takaashigani no Koura Yaki (Giant spider crab shell-roast)” (¥3500)
This is rare so there are days when it’s not available, but today, I was really lucky!
The rich flavor of the crab miso blends with the sweetness of the crab meat and it’s so good!
“Umi no Foie Gras Sashi (Raw Foie Gras of the Sea)” (¥650)
This is a stingray liver!
It has a similar texture and taste to a raw cow liver!
Japanese rice wine.
“Steamed Vegetables from Miyazaki and Kouchi” (¥880)
Served in a Tajine!
They were crisp, fresh, sweet, and just delicious!
“Delicious Daikon (Japanese White Radish) Bouillon Stew ~ Porcini Cream Sauce” (¥400)
The western flavor was surprisingly a good match with the Japanese white radish!
Japanese Rice Wine.
“Shiitake Nanban (batter-fried) ~ with Pickle Tartar” (¥580)
The batter was crisp, crunchy, and savory and it was delicious!
“Sweet Potato Fritto ~ Drizzled with Honey” (¥380)
You can almost classify this under sweets. It was very sweet and delicious!
“Hyuuga Chicken Nanban (batter-fried with a sweet-sour-salty sauce)” (¥680)
The combination of the chicken and tartar was perfect!
“Broiled Harami (cow diaphragm)” (¥980)
The meaty Harami was really juicy!
I had some hodge-podge made with the leftover miso from the Koura Yaki earlier!
Of course, they also cooked this for free!
It’s rich and delicious!
“Kamaage Shirasu Gohan (rice topped with boiled whitebait)” (¥580)
I’m so full and so satisfied!!
They have a lot of choices on their menu which is great!
You can see office buildings right in front of the window!
The room is surrounded by windows and the spaciousness feels really comfortable!
This is a really convenient shop with a nice view!
