“Fukutaro Umeda Store” in Grand Front Osaka

A new and affordable menu line-up of fine Kobe Beef!

Today I went to lunch at “Fukutaro Umeda Store”, an Okonomiyaki restaurant in Grand Front Osaka. I love this restaurant which sells negiyaki and Okonomiyaki – the food Osaka is known for. I recently heard that there is an affordable side menu option of the rare and high-value Kobe Beef at this restaurant, so I went to check it out with a friend! It is a limited stock offer of steaks and hamburger made from Kobe Beef.

‘Seared Beef’ – 780 yen.
A beautiful price for Kobe Beef that just makes you smile!


Wow!! It’s so good!!
The sweet, moist and soft meat is a perfect match for Ponzu vinegar, onions and spring onions. It’s heaven!





‘Sujinegiyaki (Spring onion pancake)’ – 1,080 yen.
This is this restaurants most famous dish on the menu. The dish is seasoned thoroughly with soy sauce beforehand, so it uniquely doesn’t need the brown sauce to give it flavor.


‘Butatamayaki (Standard pork Okonomiyaki pancake)’ – 860 yen.
The Okonomiyaki has been topped with brown sauce, mayonnaise and seaweed flakes.


When we told the restaurant means my friend would eat half each of the two dishes ordered, the restaurant kindly cut them in two for us!




Wow! So good!! The outside is so flavorsome and rich and the inside is so soft and creamy! I just can’t get enough of it! The flavor of the green onions has been brought out really well – what a great tasting dish!




Wow! So good!! Again, the inside is so soft and creamy and the meat is rare… Such a great combination to match the brown sauce topping.





The Kobe Beef menu has almost sold out today, but they plan to introduce a lot of new other items on their menu too!


I would love to come back to this restaurant at night, so I can enjoy the delicious Kobe Beef and Negiyaki with a beer!
