Yama-chan in Osaka 2

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 9 June 2008 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

Yama-chan is an izakaya (Japanese pub / restaurant) chain from Nagoya. They're famous for Nagoya dishes such as tebasaki (chicken wings) and miso kushikatsu (breaded and deep fried pork dipped in miso sauce). Yama-chan's one of my favourite places, but there aren't any branches in Osaka. So I was very excited when they had a stall at a regional food fair held in Osaka during 'Golden Week' last month...

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
