ロクヨンカレー部ログ 第1回目

「毎日カレーなんて食べれないよ」という人の気持ちが理解できずにはや20数年。こんにちは、ロクヨンスタッフのカレー担当(!)です。むしろ大阪に住んでいてカレーを食べないなんてどういうことやねん!と言いたい(というか言ってる)くらい、大阪には美味しいカレーが数多く存在するということを皆さんはご存知でしょうか。

そしてそのうちのどれもが個性的、他のどのカレーとも違い、もはや「カレーってどこからどこまでカレーやねん」と頭を抱えてしまうぐらい奥深いカレーたちメイドインオオサカ。

実はここホステルロクヨンオオサカ、そんな多種多様なカレーたちを存分に堪能できる地域に位置しているのでございます。ええ、ええええ、ええそうでございます。ここは大阪新町、人呼んでカレー激戦区なのでございます!

新町だけでいったいどのくらいのカレーたちに出会えるのか、もう全然わかんないから計算してないんですが、とにかくカレーを食べれるお店がい~~~っぱいあるのです。

そしておこがましくはございますが、皆様にそんな新町のカレーたちをご紹介させていただきたく、今日はこうしてまわりくどい文章を書いていたわけなのでございます・・・!

というわけで、今回はロクヨンカレーブログ第一回目。スタッフおすすめのカレー屋さんを3軒紹介させていただきます。ヤー!

1軒目:yobareya(ヨバレヤ)さん

IMG_3012初めてyobareyaさんのカレーを食べた時、え?これカレー?カレー・・・カレー?でも・・・美味しいからどうでもいいや!とひたすらガツガツ食べたのを覚えています。人気メニューは「エスニックハーブ」。クリーミーで不思議なカレーにレモンを振りかけるとまた一弾不思議なおいしさ。食べたことないカレーが食べたいあなたに。

2軒目:ボナボナさん

IMG_5750ストレス社会。カレーに癒されてみたい・・・な時はこちら。いろんなスパイスが沢山入ってるのに、「ワイがスパイスカレーでっせ!」と主張して来ないバランスの良さ。ホロホロのチキンがまた優しさ全開。

3軒目:columbia8(コロンビアエイト)さん

IMG_4779北浜の人気店、実は阿波座にもあるんですよー!見るからにスパイシーで美意識高めなカレー。ライスはどこにあるの?と思ってしまいますがちゃんとインサイドにあるんですよ。いつもネチネチ言ってくる上司に今日はガツンというたるねん!という気持ちを盛り上げてくれることでしょう。

さあ、いかがでしたでしょうか。お腹はすきましたでしょうか。すいたならば今回は私の勝ちだ、と思っております。すいません、ありがとうございます。ありがとうございます。

では、第2回をお楽しみに!!!


Let’s have Kobe beef in Kobe!

Kobe is fairly close from Osaka.
You’ll get to the city centre in an hour from our hostel.

Many of our guests take a day trip there and
we are often asked this question: Where can we eat Kobe beef?
Wow! Such a tough question. There’re lots of local people who haven’t had it!
So I did some reserch and found a few places look nice.
*The price is for a course with 150g of beef exept for Robata and Izakaya style.

What do you eat in Osaka ?

Me and Yoko visited to Seoul, Korea last week.
One of the intentions of this trip is to eat local foods.
And we could eat a lot of delicious Korean foods with the help of Korean friends. 매우 맛있었어요. 고맙다.

Here is my favorite…. (don’t know name.)

In Osaka,
We have a lot of good local foods, too! Check the web sites below,

TASTE OSAKA
http://www.osaka-info.jp/taste_osaka/
FOOD LIBRARY
http://www.kuidaore-osaka.com/
 
My favorites are Kitsune-Udon and Okonomiyaki with long green onion.
Kushikatsu with beer in Shinsekai is very relaxing.
Takoyaki is a just snack like a Tteokbokki -떡볶이- in Korea.

We do assure of Osaka foods’ taste =^ o ^=

What to eat in Osaka (2) — Yakiniku, Udon noodle, Yoshoku

After enjoying the basics of Osakan foods, let’s rock to the next stage.

If you feel like to try another dish, having had enough okonomi, takoyaki
and kushikatsu, there are still some you’d better to taste in Osaka.

YAKINIKU, YAKI-NIKU
It is difficult to explain, so please see the picture below.
It is grilled beef and pork, and we enjoy cooking it by ourselves.

It is sometimes called as Korean BBQ, so if you try Yakiniku in Osaka, 
please go to Tsuruhashi area, which is known as a Korean town.
UDON, UDON-NOODLE, OUDON
There are many choices for this Udon noodle.
Osakan udon is comparatively soft and smooth noodles in soup made from 
seaweed and bonito flakes. Sanuki udon’s noodle is thicker and more chewy. 
Sometimes in soup, and sometimes sprinkle with soy sauce.
Haikara Udon at the nearest Udon restaurant 
YOSHOKU, YO-SHOKU
This is Western dishes arranged for Japanese, like curry and rice, croquettes, 
hamburger steak, rice omelet and so on. To make distinguish those from 
authentic western cuisine, we call them Yoshoku. 
Because it became popular in early Showa period, many Yoshoku restaurants
have retro and, at the same time, ritzy flavor in a way. In Osaka, there are 
many famous Yoshoku restaurants. 
There are lots you must try to eat in Osaka! If you are a foodie, this is a place for you.

What to eat in Osaka (1) –Okonomi, Takoyaki, Kushikatsu

Food is one of the most important things in traveling,
especially here in Osaka.
Osaka is called Kuidaore town ; Kui = eat, Daore = fall down.
You’ll know the meaning once you come here.

Here are some local foods that you must try in Osaka.

OKONOMI, OKONOMI-YAKI
This is like a pancake, but not sweet. It contains chopped cabbage
and usually pork or seafood, and special sauce is put on it.
It is served on  a cast-iron plate just in front of you so that you can
always enjoy the hot hot Okonomi.
options: Modern-yaki (with fried noodle within Okonomi), Negi-yaki (green onions take place in cabbage and soy sauce is put on)

TAKOYAKI
Octopus ball is its English name. It is a small ball made with flour and
boiled octopus is inside of it. Served with Special sauce and some Japanese flavor on.
Go to Dotonbori area, and you’ll find many stalls that sell Takoyaki.

KUSHIKATSU
A stick of bite-sized meats, veges and anything, deep-fried in batter.
Put it in a pod of sauce in front of you, here DON’T put it twice in the
sauce as it is shared with other customers.
For Kushikatsu, the best place is Shinsekai area.

With a bottle of beer and one of these, it’s not too much to call it a great day.
