Namba Diner & Izakaya (Japanese style bar) “Tatsutaya”

This is a famous diner where guests can enjoy parties be it from the morning or noon!

For today’s lunch I went to “Diner & Izakaya Tatsutaya,” in Namba.
As long as it is within their business hours, you can use this place both as a diner or as a bar anytime!
Today, I went there for a feast beginning at noon!

“Funamori” (Boat-wrap sushi)
This is a really splendid funamori!
They prepare it according to the number of people in your party and your budget!

(゜Д゜)Yummy!(゜Д゜)Yummy!

The outstandingly fresh sashimi, just brought in from the market, is just as delicious as one might expect (^^
The “akisanma” (saury,) my favorite, is especially tasty!

Their astounding variety of a-la-carte dishes is amazingly reasonably priced.
And of course, their diner meals are also very cheap!

Their 4th floor does look very much like a diner, but their 2nd floor is a much more relaxed and calm space.
This is a restaurant to be really grateful for, since you can use it as a bar anytime, whether it is the morning or noon!
They also have seats on the 3rd floor, where they can hold banquets for large parties – I will be sure to visit them again with time to enjoy it!
