Kani Doraku Dotombori Honten Snow Crab Feast ( かに道楽 )

kani doraku dotombori honten snow crab review
Foodies heading to Osaka will not miss this huge crab signage along the famous Dotomburi Street. In fact, there are couple of them spotted during our last trip there.

Kani Doraku ( かに道楽 ) is one of the most iconic restaurants in Osaka. With outlets all over Japan, Kani Doraku serves various types of crustacean such as King Crabs, Snow Crabs and Rock Crabs.

There are a wide assortment of crab dishes, but I strongly recommend you to take the lunch / dinner courses which start from a reasonable 2,500 Yen/person ( approx USD 23/pax ) instead of going Ala Carte, as courses are more pocket-friendly and you can savour the different types of cooking style.

Well, my family picked the Sumire ( すみれ ) Course at 4,200 Yen/person. Let the food shots speak for themselves!

Overall, it was a rather pleasant meal as we got to taste the Snow Crab raw, boiled, fried etc. Our prince loves the Crab Sashimi best, while hubby and I prefer the tasty Claypot Crab Rice.

Eaten in two ways, with and without soup, the claypot rice with the crab meat emitted a delicious smoky flavour while the Ochatsuke ( rice with tea ) was very appetizing. The Snow Crab feast is reasonably priced and pretty affordable.
