In a city teeming with gourmet food, one enduring local favorite is Takoyaki. Kukuru is a famous Takoyaki joint, with the original restaurant located in Osaka's Dotombori where competition is fierce among the finest restaurants. The restaurant takes pride in its Takoyaki, with the large slices of octopus that occupy the soft and creamy innards of a wheat-based batter. Other items on the menu include a chewy textured Yakisoba, rice and octopus cooked in Dashi (Tako rice) and many others that represent Osaka's rich food culture. Available as take out.
