Ganko Osaka Houzenji
Ganko Osaka Houzenji is a branch of Ganko Sanjyo Honten in Kyoto. Just like its Kyoto branch, Ganko Osaka serves traditional Kyoto cuisine, which you can enjoy kaiseki-style or while sitting at the sushi bar. The restaurant is not entirely halal, but it offers three halal bento sets in its menu that meticulously prepared the halal way. If you intend to dine here, though, you’ll need to reserve your table and your choices from the halal menu at least three days in advance. Ganko Osaka is located in Namba.
Minokichi prides itself on its long heritage of preparing artistic kaiseki-style Kyoto cuisine. That pride is not misplaced, though, as Minokichi has been in existence since 1716. Originally a restaurant that serves mainly vegetarian food, it now serves a wide variety of haute Kyoto halal cuisine as well as more pocket-friendly set meals. In order to avail of the halal menu, though, you’ll need to reserve your table in advance. Minokichi has four locations in Osaka: Takeshigero in Hotel Hankyu International, Shinsaibashi along Midosuji, Tenmabashi, and Kintetsu Uehonmachi.
If you’re staying at Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka, then you need not go far to get your halal food. Right inside the hotel is Uemachi, a restaurant designed in the style of a grand Muromachi-era mansion. Uemachi serves exquisite halal bento sets at relatively affordable prices. But, these bento sets are prepared at a separate halal kitchen. However, Uemachi only offers a limited number of these bento sets daily. So, it’s recommended that you book your table at least three days in advance.
