Had dinner with family at Kitamura. it is located at Higashi-Shinsaibashi, Osaka. They have mostly private rooms and waitress that cooks for you. It's housed in an interesting old Japanese house. The restaurant claims to be opened since 1881, so it's more than 130years. Menu has only 3 choices, either sukiyaki, mizudaki (more like Shabu Shabu) and batayaki (beef sautéed in butter). We only tried Sukiyaki. The interesting part is that they use sugar and very little sauce to cook, hence not the typical sukiyaki that the beef and vegetables are soaked in the sukiyaki sauce. In fact, the beef is almost as dry as those tenpayaki style. The beef are of high grade Japanese beef. It does not specify the source of the beef but it tastes as good as those from Kobe. The serving is approximately 3-4 pieces per order per pax. As it is slightly thicker cut, it is more enough to fill a fairly big eater. For dessert, they serve roast tea pudding apart from ice cream and melon. The pudding is good and worth a try.
