Kura in Esaka
I had dinner at a pork shabu izakaya in Esaka called “Kura”.
In this izakaya, you can enjoy various branded pork shabu-shabu and yaki-shabu.
This time, I had yaki-shabu.
“Inunaki Pork Shabu” (¥2280 for 1 person, photo shows serving for 2 people), “Kinun Pork Shabu” (¥2480 for 1 person, photo shows serving for 2 people)
The meat had a very delicious-looking color!
Rolling it and eating it with some ponzu sauce…
The soft and tender meat had a sweetness to it and was refreshingly delicious!
Now with sesame sauce…
The savory flavor of the sesame sauce goes perfectly with the sweetness in the pork!
“Japanese Black Wagyu” (¥2580 for 1 person, photo shows serving for 2 people)
They also had beef, so we added some meat to our order!
Once we put it on the teppan, it got cooked quickly!
With sesame sauce…
The meat had a rich sweetness to it. It was very, very tender and quickly melted in my mouth!
“Special Roast Pork” (¥300)
“Gyu-suji Doteyaki (Beef sinew stewed in miso and mirin)” (¥480)
“Pork Miso Cucumber” (¥300), “Edamame (Green Soybeans)” (¥280), “Chinese Yam with Wasabi” (¥300), “Crispy Daikon (Japanese White Radish) Salad” (¥480)
“One-bite Katsu Three Variety Platter (Cream Cheese Katsu, Plum Pulp and Shiso One-bite Katsu, Pork Kimcheese Katsu)”
All the different ingredients went perfectly with the pork!
“Yakiton (skewered grilled pork) Five Variety Platter (heart, intestine, tongue, outside skirt, asparagus bacon)” (¥780)
Both the salt-grilled and the sauce-grilled ones effectively bring out the flavor of the different ingredients!
“Super Spicy Mapo-Tofu” (¥580)
This is really super spicy, but it was also rich in both sweet and savory flavor!
I’m full and very satisfied!!
This shop is located in front of Esaka Station, but it’s on the third floor of a building, so it’s really hard to find. It’s sort of hidden away.
Most of their seats are private room seats, so you can enjoy this place equally with a large group or a small one. It’s an excellently customer-friendly shop.
If ever you want to eat some delicious pork cuisine at reasonable prices somewhere in front of Esaka Station, I highly recommend you try this place!
