Highly recommended for any one looking for some fried goodness, it doesn't get any better than this. They serve literally everything fried. From veggies, meats and seafood. Great experience and would definitely recommend for anyone in the Osaka area.

Creo-Ru's takoyaki and Mizuno's okonomiyaki are supposedly the some of the best in Osaka, however I was not entirely impressed with the taste.
