Naniwa Okina

Naniwa Okina is a Bib Gourmand featured restaurant, which means it offers exceptionally good food at a reasonable price. So if you're a foodie on a budget, you should be on the lookout for these Bib Gourmand restos. Naniwa Okina is one of these hidden gems you need to go check out for yourself!


Naniwa Okina offers two types of soba noodles. One which is a mix of soba flour (80%) and white flour (20%).
This restaurant serves delicious soba and the best part is that it'll only cost you between ¥1,000-¥2,000 per person for lunch or dinner. If you're not acquainted with soba noodles yet, this might be your best bet. It has a nice firm texture and has a nice soba smell.
You can also try the 100% soba flour soba which is also delicious and incredibly healthy.

Apart from the classic "Zaru Soba" dish which is just soba with dashi, the "Kamo soba" pictured above is also a must-try!
During Japan's scorching hot summers, you might not be in the mood for a hot bowl of soba, but they have tons of cold soba noodles which are definitely worth trying. If you're not accustomed to cold soba, it might seem strange, but it's really light and refreshing. You can have, for example, summer vegetable soba or eel soba. A lot of Japanese people swear by eel in the summer to combat summer tiredness.
They are tons of variations available, such as shirako soba and oyster soba to try as well!
What better accompaniment for soba than sake or beer! Give it a shot (literally or not)!


When visiting Osaka, you should stop by Naniwa Okina to try an excellent, yet affordable restaurant!

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
