Yaki-niku is barbecue, pure and simple. It first came over from Korea, but the Japanese have perfected it. If you don't like meat, read no further.
Yaki-niku is raw meat they serve to you, and you cook it at your table. I found a great restaurant near Nagoya Station. There are three other locations in the city.
Favorite Dish: Karubi is the best. It's beef and there are two kinds. One is sliced thinly while the other is a chunk. Delicious. Hmmmmmm.
Another great choice is Bibinba. It's rice with yaki-niku, spinach, and spices that's truly tasty. Nothing quite like it back home.
In Japan, a lot of times we would just go to the "Izakaya" is kind of equivalent to the Pubs/Bars. But a lot of the Izakaya's tries to specialize in "what-they-are-known-for". in Nagoya, there is the local chain Izakaya known as "the world famous, Yama-chan".
Favorite Dish: Their tebasaki, which is a special spiced chicken wings is unworldly good. You can pound beers and eat these things all night. If you can read Japanese, here is their home page:
Yamachan has the best tebasaki. Don't know what tebasaki is? Well, you haven't tried it yet. It's fried chicken wings dusted with pepper. Delicious. Look for the sign everywhere. There are four restaurants within a rock's throw from where I live in Meieki, downtown Nagoya. Beware that you'll have probably have to wait in line as all the restaurants I've seen are far too small for their demand.
Favorite Dish: Tebasaki. They also have the usual sort of izakaya (Japanese bar) food. Lots of food and drinks to choose from.
If you like chinese noodles,there is a nice place at Nagoya station.
It is located next to the gate of JR station.
Many Ramen(Chinese noodles) shop are there and the taste is good.
The shops came from a part of Japan,such as Kyusyu,Okinawa.
Many kinds of Ramen are there!
Favorite Dish: Ramen
A cheap meal can be had if you take the shinkansen. A bowl of udon costs under 400 yen in noodle stalls in many JR stations. This stall was located on the Tokaido shinkansen line at JR Nagoya Station.
Favorite Dish: Try any of the udon dishes as it is very delicious!
Sugakiya's "ramen"(a kind of chinese noodle)is very low prices!
Ramen is 280yen.(now is May 2005)
The taste is good.
It's very famous among Nagoya people.
The taste is sometimes called mother's taste in Nagoya.
If you are a little bit hungry when you are in Nagoya,let's try it!
Favorite Dish: Very cheap,and the taste is good.
another famous local dish of Nagoya.
Nagoya is famous for her Miso Katsu (Tempura Fried Pork with sweet miso sauce), and the most famous restaurant in here is Yabaton.
Always many ppls queueing in here.
Price varies from 700 yen to 1400yen
a famous local dish in Nagoya.
You seldom can find this dish out from Nagoya.
Nikomi Udon taste different with other udon in Japan. This kind of Udon's soup is a little bit sweet.
Yamamotoya is the most famous Nikomi Udon Rest. in Nagoya. You have to queue for entering this shop.
Tampopo is a movie that is based around the role food plays in Japan... with a general theme of ramin and off shots in every direction. My love and my father's love of this movie is what made it a must do, no matter how short I was in Japan.
I was sick the day I ate this bowl, but it tasted so good. I wish I could have been feeling better. Being rushed and being sick are no way to enjoy a meal. I suggest that anyone going anywhere in Japan find a little dirty or clean... ramin(noodle) soup shop and have a bowl.
Pedro San Venancio is from Extremadura. A nice and talkative gentleman preparing and serving the best of Spain in Japan. Tell him i sent you...And get ready for a long night.
Favorite Dish: Camarones al Ajillo and the rest of the menu.
"Hot off the grill"... as long as you remove it before it burns.
This grill-in-your-face style of cooking was unusual to me, but at least it allows you to get it exactly the way you want it, and lets you avoid those long pauses in conversation, by becoming engrossed in the food.
I suspect most of the people who visit these pages are familiar with the Sizzler - an American steakhouse with affordable meals.
My stepfather & I stopped here for the familiar cuisine... only so much local food before the tastebuds wanted something from home!
(To be honest, I'd never been to a Sizzler before - David Letterman's jokes have made me steer clear).
Favorite Dish: Nothing out of the ordinary - a nice, regular kind of lunch for a North American taste.
Ooops, I forgot to take down the name of this place! Anyway, you can find it on track 11 (at the end of the platform near the escalator) at Nagoya JR Station.
This type of noodles is Nagoya's specialty. Unlike the udon & soba, it's flat. I like it very much :)
Favorite Dish: Kishimen, be it served cold or hot.
KAWAIYA: Try Nagoya's famous flat Kishimen noodles that resemble fettuccini. Kawaiya's delicious kishimen is a bargain at JPY500. If you don't want your noodles plain, order the ebi oroshi kishime, noodles with shrimp tempura and grated daikon radish at JPY1200.
Regional noodles, inexpensive.
Favorite Dish: Noodles!
MISO NO SUGIMOTO: Whenever I am in Nagoya, I try to eat the delicious sukiyaki that's made with premium Matsuzaka beef. Choose to sit either at the tables and chairs on the first floor or on tatami mats on the second. The menu is less expensive on the first floor.
Favorite Dish: I recommend the delicious sukiyaki.
