Unlimited yakiniku in Namba, serving steak cuts and beef tongue

Unlimited meat? Always, yes!

Smacked right between Dhotonbori and Shinsaibashi, Yakiniku Rikamaru is just behind the Glicko billboard. Open until midnight, this yaikiniku is perfect for meat lovers and those who wish to dine late at night.

The lines usually get long, and they can only accommodate so many people. We recommend going there days ahead to secure a reservation, especially if you plan to go on a weekend. They only accommodate walk-ins after all reservations have been served.

Rikamaru has 2 primary courses for the all-you-can-eat experience. Course 1 is for the basic meat selection, and Course 2 is for the premium ones that go for 90 minutes or 120 minutes. With a little price difference, we recommend you get the 120-minute premium course Rikamaru for a full experience.

Here, their specialty meat is beef tongue. Don’t get freaked out; they’re really, really good and tender. You can order different cuts of the beef tongue and also their rare cut for the day. We recommend grilling them to medium for that tender finish and smoky flavors. They also offer sides and sauces, but just a pinch of salt is enough to go with the beef tongue.

All other side dishes and hot orders are included in the unlimited course selection. Their offerings range from egg soup, edamame, rice bowls, and beef tongue nigiri.

You may also opt for an unlimited drink course on top of your meat course. They have a variety of soda, juices, beer, and other alcoholic drinks.

If you are a meat lover on a budget, this should be on your must-visit list in Osaka!
