A Crab Feast (Kansai, Japan Trip 2012, Day 1)

I arrived in Osaka city in the evening. After settling down at the hotel, it was time for dinner. Since it’s our first night in Osaka, my friend suggested to eat something special – crab feast. We tried that in Hokkaido and was curious to know if Osaka’s is as good or even better.

We decided to eat at the very popular Kani Douraku’s (かに道楽) main restaurant (本店) at Dotonbori (道頓堀) as our hotel is nearby. The restaurant was full-house and we were asked to wait for about 45 minutes. As we are really big fans of crabs, we decided to shop in the vicinity while waiting.

The crab feast consists of various Japanese dishes made with crabmeat such as steamed crab legs with cheese fondue, crabmeat chawan mushi (steamed egg), crabmeat sushi, crabmeat tempura (fried crabmeat with batter) and crabmeat rice bowl. It also comes with a bowl of clear soup and green tea ice cream. All these come at a price of 4900 yen. Not cheap but there are a lot of dishes in the set!

The crab feast was good but I think I still prefer Hokkaido’s as theirs are fresher.
