Today's best dish is! ! ? ?? ?

Well,... ?

It was all about whales! !? ?

Today's best dish is! ! ? ?? That's because I'm introducing the most delicious dish out of all the dishes I ordered based on my personal opinion! Please try ordering when you visit this store! It was delicious! It tasted bad! You may have your own preferences, but I hope this will be helpful for those who are visiting for the first time.

I'm on a business trip to Osaka today, so I was wondering what kind of food I should have, and I found a restaurant that specializes in rare whales, or rather, a restaurant that sells whales, so I made a reservation here.
I've been to several shops that sell whales, and even if they don't have a distinctive odor, they're still delicious! I rarely feel that way.
However, from the results, this whale dish had no odor at all, and it was a delicious whale with a very strong flavor!
The various parts were explained in detail, so I was able to eat while thinking that I understood, and I was able to appreciate the high quality of the restaurant and the food.
The general also came to say hello at the end, so I have to go again!
Thank you for the meal (^-^)


I've been visiting you for over 10 years.
I've been to quite a few restaurants around the country that are said to be delicious, but I haven't found any hotpot soup stock or quality that surpasses this one.
Even though it's not a very distinctive taste, I think the unforgettable taste here is wonderful.
It's so delicious that you can laugh just by putting the soup in your mouth.
It's delicious anyway!
It's the best Japanese food I know.
