What's so special about Osaka's sukiyaki?

The big difference between sukiyaki in Kansai and Kanto is the ingredients for the flavor and the way its cooked.

In Kanto region, usually people boil vegetables and beef with warishita, which is consisted of soy sauce, mirin (sweet sake seasoning), cooking sake, sugar and water.
On the other hand, in Kansai region, it is common to grill meat first, add flavor using soy sauce and sugar, and then put vegetables and boil. They don't use warishita, and instead they balance the flavor using water or cooking sake.

Now you know the difference, let's find out places where you can eat Kansai-style sukiyaki in Osaka!

Nabeya (なべや)

Just a 3 minute walk from Imaike station, this place is unbelievable. The amount of the meat is unbelievable, and its price is unbelievably cheap, and it is just simply amazing. You get this much for only ¥680! Usually people eat sukiyaki using beef meat, but they also have chicken and pork sukiyaki. They also have other nabe (a hot pot dish) menu, and their oyster nabe is worth checking out too.
