MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Masaharu Shimamura prizes the superb epicurean flavours of Osaka cuisine. Using the umami of kombu, he draws out the natural flavours of ingredients grown around the surrounding Kansai region. He takes care to use every part of the ingredient. The ‘Nozaki-style grilled small sea bream’ is a speciality that demonstrates that approach. He cooks it whole in rapeseed oil to trap in the moisture. The bones get soft and break apart, so you can enjoy every part of it.

The chef's commitment
We collaborate in farm-raising fish – to minimise the environmental burden – and in popularising it. We do not use fish caught using methods that threaten the ecosystem. We are also strengthening our ties with farmers that grow traditional Naniwa vegetables, so that Osaka food culture gets passed on.
