I went to Yumeya 夢屋 last night, the yakitori place in the parking lot. It really was some of the best yakitori I have ever had. You get a big portion for 150 yen. The meat is fully cooked. Incredible. I brought my wife there and she loved it. Great atmosphere.15-20 people can easily fit inside. There are no walls, only plastic sheets, but the place is fully heated. There are two masters, Gian and Suneo, both named after Doraemon characters (see last photo). When we went Suneo was working. Friendly guy…he told us to call him by his first name instead of Master. Took our photo at the end and stapled it to the wall. My wife loved the tebasaki (chicken wing) oden. I had two beers and the bill came to 2,200 for two people. Very reasonable. (Directions 大阪市中央区千日前2丁目5-17 Sennichimae 2 Chome 5-17..Make a right at Bic Camera. Walk 1 1/2 blocks. You’ll see the Parking sign and an alley (Next to Nishinoryu chanko nabe restaurant) Or simply get out of exit 25 of Namba Walk. Open 7:00PM-5:00AM.
Sign says. (rough trans) “Our freshly-slaughtered chicken is too delicious. Do not eat! Danger! Our chicken is so delicious that it will cause trauma” This is a pun because toriuma means “delicious chicken” but the “ri” is crossed out and replaced with “ra” so it reads as “torauma” (trauma).
Yumeya is in the parking lot near Koushiya (see post)
