Hello! Today I’ll share about one of the best halal restaurants in Osaka.
The restaurant name is Matsuri. It’s located very conveniently, near the station. Well, actually I’ve been writing about Matsuri in this blog entry (in Bahasa Indonesia). This time I’ll also write about the price and their menu!
First, let’s talk about the access! The nearest station is Noda-Hanshin station. If you’re going by subway it will be the last stop of Sennichimae Line. After getting off from the train, you should go to the exit gate number 7. After that just walk straight, and you will find Matsuri Restaurant on your left side and the road on the right side. If you want to go by JR, or a little bit confused about my explanation please click here for the restaurant coordinate on Google Maps.
They serve halal Japanese dish (Washoku). Usually, Halal restaurants in Japan are serving Pakistan/Indian/Malaysian/Indonesian food. So, if you’re craving for authentic Japanese Cuisine, just come to Matsuri and order whatever you want! All of their food is Halal, so you don’t have to worry! However, they do still serving beer and other kinds of alcohol.
In this restaurant two kinds of room. When you walk in, you’ll enter the first room. In this room like usual, there are tables and chairs. Please click here to see the photo of this room in the 360-degree photo. Please pardon me and my friend face haha. Okay, let’s go to the next room. The second room is Traditional Japanese room style with Tatami installed. This room is connected to the prayer room. YES, THEY DO HAVE ITS OWN PRAYER ROOM! Ok, once again, please click here to see the photo of this room in the 360-degree photo.
Okay! let’s move on to their menu!!
First, let’s start with my favorite menu! Just like in the caption, this dish is called Chicken Nanban. This is Japanese Style fried chicken (karaage) with egg salad on it. IT IS SO DELICIOUS! I’m not exaggerating, it really is delicious! You have to try this once you go to this restaurant
You might think that this dish is Okonomiyaki. Well, it’s similar to Okonomiyaki without the cabbage. It’s so smooth, it almost feels like it’s melting in your mouth. For the best taste, I suggest you to eat this while it’s still hot.
As Indonesian usually say this dish is Ayam Goreng, if you order this with rice set, you’ll also get a bowl of rice (of course haha) and a bowl of miso soup.
This is not the ordinary Tamagoyaki (pan fried rolled egg). As you can see, it’s called Dashimaki. Dashi is Japanese style fish broth. When you eat this, you’ll be able to tell how strong and delicious the Dashi is! It’s also so soft!
This is it! If you like to watch Japanese TV Drama or Anime, you must have known what this is. This is gyoza, HALAL Gyoza! Usually, the use pork as a filling. However, you don’t have to worry, since in Matsuri they use chicken as a substitute. Don’t forget to eat it with its sauce!
It’s not complete if Japanese Restaurant doesn’t have Ramen in their menu. It’s called Samurai Ramen, and of course, it’s delicious! You’re also able to buy the uncooked one so you can give it to the people in your country as a present from Japan! They also have another variant of ramen, but since I never eat it I can’t make a review about it.
Yeay! This snack-like dish it’s good if you just want to do some snacking. They have many options so you can choose freely!
They also have Takoyaki (you’re also able to experience how to make takoyaki!), Okonomiyaki, Sashimi, etc on their menu! Matsuri makes their own Halal Okonomiyaki/Takoyaki sauce, and they sell it too! So, if you’re in Osaka don’t forget to come to Matsuri Restaurant!
