And if you’re a foodie, you’re especially lucky! Of course there are tons of restaurants serving up delicious Japanese cuisine all across this country. So whether you’re in the mood for sushi or okonomiyaki or anything in between, you can easily find what you’re looking for.
But sometimes you’ll crave for something more familiar, something a bit closer to home. Lucky for you Japan’s restaurant scene has got you covered there, too.
Recently I hung out with a fellow foreign friend—Jeff—who knew of a place called Lingua World Cafe. It’s located near Tanimachi 9-chome Station, just two stops from Namba via the Sennichimae Line. He said it was run by a Canadian friend of his, along with the friend’s wife. Jeff also said they serve up a bunch of tasty dishes. He particularly recommended the Garlic Fingers. We were going there to relax, drink a bit of alcohol and enjoy the good food. And that’s exactly what we did!
Jeff and I really enjoyed our time at Lingua World Cafe. We started with a plate of nachos and a couple of beers. And Jeff was right about the Garlic Fingers. They were so good that we had two plates of the Garlic Fingers! We made plans to come back soon and invite others to join us. I know my 13 year old daughter would absolutely love the chilled out vibe and scrumptious treats Lingua World Cafe has to offer.
One thing you’re sure to notice about Lingua World Cafe is just how family-friendly it is. I saw happy kids playing along side other happy kids, while their parents enjoyed a bit of time for themselves. I heard people speaking English, Japanese, even a bit of Chinese and Korean. The atmosphere was relaxed, people were smiling and the food was AMAZING!!
If you’re ever in the neighborhood, check out Lingua World Cafe sometime. The owner and his wife are always friendly and super happy to be a part of your day.
Fortunately for us expats, there are all sorts of restaurants, cafes and bars in various locations throughout Japan like Lingua World Cafe serving food and hospitality that will remind you of the food back home.
