If you take a turn on one of the narrow streets in Osaka, you have a chance of coming across a house that has remodeled its front side to open a Takoyaki or Okonomiyaki shop. It is like a "soul food" or in a way, "mom's cooking". There are other foods such as Dote-yaki and Kushiage which are both fast, easy to eat and cheap. They can be part of a meal or a light snack. Cheap and something one can't live without - that"s what cheap eats of Osaka are all about.
