This is a very unpretentious restaurant that serves good home cooked style meals at very good prices.
I had the Unagi (eel) which was good and about half the price you pay at a specialty Eel restaurant.
This reminds me of mom’s cooking restaurant. The restaurant is small but cosy. We chanced upon this restaurant during our 3 day stay at Aomori near the station. Only discovered how famous it is after eating here. There is always a long queue here whenever...we passed the restaurant. Their popular dish are scallops. We had butter scallops served in half shelf which are quite tasty. Price is not expensive but not cheap considering we bought very fresh kaisen don at 1 of the supermarket at Aomori station which are a lot cheaper and also very fresh. In our opinion, this place is over hyped but definitely worth a try. There are mainly tourists patrons here.More
No fancy place, actually the food has some homestyle-feel to it. They‘re not on display outside, but ask for the grilled scallops. They have a pictured menu in case you can‘t read the Japanese one. The prices are moderate - if you go for raw...seafood on rice (“**-don”) you’ll typically end up somewhere between 1,200 and 1,650円, a recommended set with grilled scallops, scallop sashimi, miso soup, rice and some other sides was 2,470円. Good quality for the money!More
Had a dinner here around 5 PM while the restaurant still had vacant seats on Monday evening.
Scallops Combination Dinner provides sashimi and butter-baked scallops - oh, they are fresh, hearty flavored and sweet.
Very popular for both locals and visitors, people were lined up...to the sidewalk for their turns to seat and dine, by the time I left the restaurant around 5:40 PM.
Average interior décor. Not spacious in terms of dining space.More
We visited the restaurant for 2 consecutive nights. The food is fresh and dinner set was great. Both cooked and fresh scallop was tasty.
The grill scallop is a bit salty for us but to have with beer it is fine. Fried fish is also...not to miss. Overall experience is great with reasonable price.More
We started having conversation with an American-Japanese whilst at Mt Hakkodan, and suggestion was given to try Restaurant Osanai, since we had inquired into having traditional comfort food. It's a stone's throw from JR Aomori Stn. Walk in and you're greeted by a gamely lady,...probably in her 50s...in fact the other 3 were also similar vintage. A quick scan of the room : elderly-looking clientele, simple furniture, a TV in the corner blaring away with a Japanese game show, comic books to read whilst waiting...all smacked of a homey casual bite place. The menu is reasonably extensive, with teshoku sets. But what catches our eye are the prices : they are lower than we've seen for similar elsewhere. The sukiyaki set iis selling well tonight (it's cold outside), and the scallops set is highly recommended. I scan around the other tables, and the katsudon is envogue too. The meal is tasty, albeit simple. And the matronly ladies remind you of mothers who are feeding their brood, because they are talking to you on each pass by the table (lotsa regulars it sounds like; which is nice and speaks volume for them).
Cheq-koo prease. And it comes to ¥2345 > 2 full sets and a large bottle biru. Nothing Beats a great priced meal at a traditional mom-n-pop joint.More
This restaurant is famous for its scallop that you must try its fresh or cooked scallops. Unfortunately when we arrived at the restaurant at night all fresh scallps were sold out that we could only take the cooked scallops dish. It was crowded that we...needed to wait for about 10 minutes but it was well worth the time. There were many local people as well as Taiwanese tourists. The prices are reasonable and it takes 5 minutes walk from the JR statin station. It closes quite early by 9pm that if you want to have dinner there you should go there as early as possibleMore
Look for the big scallop painted on the yellow about 100 meters from the train station in Amenity Street.
The small but well patronized eatery provides great food and good value.
Beware...credit cards are NOT accepted.
Dinner here was amazing, very easy to find from the train station, the hosts are very friendly and service was really quick. The food was delicious and great value - the set meals are great and they have the menu in several languages for tourists.

Exit the train station on the east side. Go around the bus terminal area toward Hotel Route Inn. Walk around the souvenir shop area to the arcade sidewalk. It's on the left side after few shops/restaurants.
