3 recommended restaurants offering plant-based food in Osaka Ikeda

Ikeda city tourist information centre


This tourist information center is located on the road from Hankyu Ikeda Station to the CUPNOODLES MUSEUM in Osaka Ikeda.

This unique facility not only introduces the highlights of Ikeda City and sells original goods, but also offers food and drinks typical of Ikeda.


The most prominent of these is the deep fried chicken using the world’s first instant ramen noodle “Chicken Ramen” as the batter. A standard fried chicken dish is also available, but a plant-based fried chicken dish made with soybean meat is also available.


The texture of the fried soybean meat is so good that you wouldn’t even notice it if you weren’t told it was soybean! The crunchy texture and robust flavor of the chicken ramen is addictive and just the right snack when you are hungry.
