We all know how dining at seafood restaurants can be expensive these days. That’s why it’s no surprise that Sakanaya Stand Fujiko, an izakaya or restaurant selling affordable seafood dishes, is all the rage in Osaka, Japan right now. Known for drawing a line of eager diners, this seafood tavern is located near the central escalator at the basement of LUCUA Osaka, a commercial building connected to JR Osaka Station.
One of their bestselling meals that customers line up for even before opening hours is Sakanaya Fujiko-chan Teisyoku (¥1,080), a limited lunch set which includes sashimi, soup, and six other dishes of the day.
Available from 4 p.m. onwards, Sakana-mori is a must-try set dish that consists of five different kinds of sashimi, such as flatfish and striped jack, personally chosen by the chef for you.
If you want to enjoy your meals with a bottle of wine, we suggest you come early since these drinks sell like hotcakes, especially the popular brands. You can choose from a selection of 13 kinds of sake carefully handpicked by the owner, including local ones that you can buy for a cheaper price.
As Sakanaya Stand Fujiko is directly under the management of a fresh fish retailer, you can be sure that there is always a high supply of quality seafood to meet the equally high demand in this restaurant. So the next time you’re in Osaka, make sure to drop by this tavern and have your fill of amazing seafood fare without worrying of breaking the bank.
