Date Night in Osaka

4/5 from 2 Customers
Loading...
Dotonbori in Osaka is a food lover's paradise with numerous restaurants and izakayas (late night bars which also serve food) to get your fix. To begin we’ve got an Osaka-style okonomiyaki pancake - shredded vegetables mixed into a batter then cooked a little like a Spanish tortilla, topped with the Japanese version of brown sauce and a wasabi flavoured mayo. Next we’ve got a spicy bowl of tantan ramen which is based on dan dan noodles, a dish from the Sichuan province of China. Finally a rich ginger soy creme caramel to cool down the chilli heat from those noodles!

Disappointing! Liked the starter but the ramen was average…

We're glad that you enjoyed the starter, but sorry to hear that the rest of the meal didn't go down so well! We appreciate the feedback, though, and will take another look at this recipe.

5/5

We loved everything about this box! The starter was the best one we've had from a spice box, so tasty we ended up making a version of it again the next day! Amazing ramen too. Creme caramel didn't work too well but think this was more about my culinary skills than the recipe! Definite 5 stars from us, absolutely cracking!

It's great to hear how much you loved this box, Daniel! And don't worry, creme caramels are a bit tricky to get right... it just gives you an excuse to have another go! Happy spicing!
