Creo Ru is the best place in Dotonbori to try takoyaki! But you can get all of the traditional Osakan foods here. This restaurant is popular with both tourists and locals for its tasty dishes, extensive drink menu, and the great views overlooking the canal. The vibe is fun and cozy, and the menu is well priced for the great location.

This place has takoyaki AND okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is a savory pancake however you like it. Sorry gluten-free peeps, this is made with flour, eggs, and cabbage. Toppings are up to you, but I suggest the seafood mix. The takoyaki is good here too, but not as crispy as I like. Maybe I just had a bad batch, but if you're not on a diet, I suggest trying both the takoyaki and the okonomiyaki.

As I walked down Dotonbori pedestrian street for the first time, it was impossible to ignore the huge, pink octopus swirling around in the distance. While the line I found underneath it was long, the crispy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside takoyaki octopus fritters were just what I needed to snack on.

Osaka’s sort of mixture of pancake and omelets, okonomiyaki, is globally known as one of the city’s pride and signature. You could find it anywhere around the city, but I suggest you trying CREO-RU which is located in the hustle-bustle Dotonbori. It provides a few of Osaka specialty dishes, but what makes the queue up hardly get shortens is its delicate and delicious okonomiyaki which comes in various kinds of toppings and fillings. Just be prepared to get your table ready longer, especially at dining time because this place seems always busy and full with both locals and tourists.
