Osaka Yakiniku Restaurants: 3 Best Yakiniku in Osaka with Wagyu Beef

Looking for food tour ideas in Osaka? Why not go hunting for the best yakiniku restaurants? We got you with our top recommendations!

Yakininu, or simply “grilled meat,” is quite a popular dish in Japanese cuisine. Often served as part of a larger meal with rice, vegetables, and dipping sauces, yakiniku may come in different forms, usually sauce-marinated thin-sliced beef, pork, or chicken grilled over charcoal.

When in Japan, the yakiniku experience is not just any grilled meat. Most yakiniku restaurants, if not all, serve different types of Wagyu beef, a meat from Japanese beef cattle known for its umami flavor and high marbling or thin lines of fat that are distributed almost evenly throughout the meat.
