food in Osaka 2008/6/21 05:11
According to a site in Google "The Kuromon Ichiba Market is a "food treasure chest" full of delicious products from all over Japan. This market serves as the kitchen for the Osaka Minami Area". Another entry:
Located in the Nipponbashi district (in the Minami Namba area), the Kuromon Market has been a marketplace for over 170 years. Today it is the place to come for sushi-grade fish, best quality meat, fresh vegetables and fruit, endless barrels of pickled seaweeds and vegetables, eggs from quail and duck, or a fresh sushi lunch at bargain prices.
I heard about that place before.kind of hard to give directions. you need a map of Osaka. it is located in Namba, just 5 minutes walk East of the Nankai rail terminal station (that station is within a huge complex with underground stores, department stores etc.) the marker is by the nipponbashi subway station for the Sennichimaie line AND the Sakaisuji line.Beware!! it is a long way from the water to carry lots of food! the port area itself is fairly big.
all big departments stores have great food floors in their basement but they are quite pricy..Osaka is said to have the best food in all of Japan.
