In a previous blog post, I introduced you halal foods in Japan. This concept is only developing from five to nearly ten years ago, as tourists and visitors from South-East Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia) increased. After ramen, I can introduce you three Japanese popular food you can now find halal in Osaka and in other places in Japan: sukiyaki, shabushabu and yakiniku. Enjoy!

Sukiyaki & Shabushabu

Sukiyaki and shabu-shabu are Japanese hotpot dishes (nabemono). Like ramen, they are a popular Japanese cuisine, although they are often more expensive. But we think it’s worth the price! I recommend giving them a try!

Sukiyaki consists of meat (usually thinly sliced beef) which is slowly cooked or simmered at the table, alongside vegetables and other ingredients, in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin (this time, halal mirin) in a shallow iron pot. Sukiyaki is a popular winter dish and is commonly found at bōnenkai (Japanese year-end parties). Shabu-shabu also consists of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water. Shabu-shabu is less sweet than sukiyaki.

You can try both at Bulls, in OCAT Namba, near JR Namba station.

Yakiniku means literally “grilled meat”. Japanese people like yakiniku, specifically on special occasions. You can find halal yakiniku in Osaka, Japan at Zerohachi Matsuyamachi, a restaurant near Osaka Metro Matsuyamachi station, near Osaka Minami.

As I said in a previous blog post, there are of course even more halal restaurants than them in Osaka, Japan! Other blog posts will sure follow. Also, do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to recommend you many other places at any time.
