Three Broomsticks (Universal Studios Osaka)

Located inside Universal Studio Osaka’s Harry Potter world Hogsmeade Village, Three Broomsticks is an iconic restaurant/pub from the series where students would go to spend their weekends. Like the entire area, both the exterior and interior designs are as close to your imagination (and the movies) as it can get. The inside of the restaurant […]

Shiki

Visited Shiki for my mother’s birthday. We all went with the Keyaki set, which was 8 courses. It is teppanyaki-style with about 8 seats per teppanyaki table and 1 chef per table.. Below are the few photogenic courses. The sashimi was generously portioned, as you can see how thick the slices are. The tuna and […]

Tu Restaurant and Bar

A recently opened french restaurant, my sister and I went for a taste test at Tu to see how the food was (also helped that she had discount voucher). The restaurant itself was very small, fitting only about 4-5 tables of around 2-6 people each. Because of this, and the fact that it was relatively […]

Ajinoya

I found this place online and didn’t realize until we reached the door that it was a Michelin-starred restaurant. Made sense given the long wait we had to go through even though we were already there just 30min after opening time. They are quite used to this and have a pretty good system in place […]

Kawaii Monster Cafe

Saw a video about this restaurant on Facebook and thought it would be interesting enough to give it a try. You can see a short clip of us entering the restaurant here. The music was a little loud at times but the staff were lively, friendly and very accommodating; especially given most of their clientele […]

The Modern Eatery

On Saturday, The Modern Eatery had their soft opening and therefore had everything (except desserts) on their menu at 50% off. A friend of mine who works there let us know and helped us get a booking for dinner that night. The atmosphere there was very relaxed and the food came at a nice leisurely […]
