“Orquesta” in Naniwa ward

A good value lunch that comes with a buffet of select vegetable salad, pasta, soup, and bread!

For today’s lunch I went to “Orquesta”, a cafe in Naniwa ward that serves char-grilled food.
Utilizing space beneath the elevated tracks for the Nankai Electric Railway, it is a large and very stylish cafe-style restaurant where you can get lunch with a buffet that has great value for the money.
When you select a main dish, it always comes with an all-you-can-eat buffet of salad, pasta, soup, and bread!
Today I went with a friend, and we ordered and shared the “Char-grilled dish A with char-grilled beef sirloin” (¥1,300), and the “Char-grilled dish B with salmon and swordfish char-grilled with soy and ginger” (¥1,300).
First, we got some salad and pasta from the buffet…


The selected vegetables are fresh and are so delicious that you could keep eating them!
The soup, made of pork, winter melon, and grilled green onions, is full of a variety of good tastes and is insanely delicious!
The pasta also had an outstanding flavor!
From this alone you could end up eating your fill.







It is too pleasing that everything is all-you-can-eat!


“Char-grilled beef sirloin”
It is a large and thick piece of meat!


When I cut it, dip it in the sauce, and eat it…


The firm and chewy meat is very juicy, and the original flavor of the meat is very rich!
Although it is certainly not tender meat, with the char-grilled smell you can enjoy a nice barbecue-like mood. (^^


“Salmon and swordfish char-grilled with soy and ginger”
This also has plenty of volume!


Eating it with the soy and ginger sauce…


The very good tasting fatty salmon goes excellently well with the sauce that is full of the flavor of ginger!



You can get a drink with the lunch for an additional ¥150.





The large and spacious inside of the restaurant is very nice and comfortable!
With the same lunch served on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, and since in the evening you can have a “buffet-style dinner” that is an even greater value, you should definitely go to this restaurant!
