It was not even 6pm yet but a lot of the popular restaurants and eateries already have queues. We settled with Ganko がんこ寿司on Dotonbori, it still have plenty of tables when we got there around 6pm but had a short queue by the time we left. The deep dried dishes were done well. I particularly liked this tofu cooked in 3 ways dish. Sushi was so-so.
Kids were particularly happy with their impressive kids meals.
