Located across the street from Bic Camera. Cross the Sennichimae and walk into the shotengai. Turn right at the takoyaki restaurant with the red awning . Marufuku is the third restaurant down. The master is a very friendly guy from the Philippines who has lived in Osaka for 30 years. Marufuku specializes in cheap meat dishes for ¥160 to ¥350 (you don’t have to like horumon to enjoy them). I recommend the tontoro (fatty meat around the cheek and the neck ¥250) hanasuji (snout ¥250), kobukuro (uterus..so that’s what I ate ¥250), rosu (sirloin, ¥300). Be sure to try the special sauce on the counter. Beer: namachu is ¥350 and a daibin or Kirin or Asahi is ¥390 (now ¥440). Be sure to try Kobe Cup Sake for ¥250. Glass bottles of Pepsi are ¥120. Ask the master about the ¥800 beer and 2 meat special. He speaks English fluently. Open from 4PM to 5AM weekdays. 1PM to 5AM weekends and holidays.
