This restaurant is famous for its scallop that you must try its fresh or cooked scallops. Unfortunately when we arrived at the restaurant at night all fresh scallps were sold out that we could only take the cooked scallops dish. It was crowded that we needed to wait for about 10 minutes but it was well worth the time. There... More

Look for the big scallop painted on the yellow about 100 meters from the train station in Amenity Street. The small but well patronized eatery provides great food and good value. Beware...credit cards are NOT accepted.

Dinner here was amazing, very easy to find from the train station, the hosts are very friendly and service was really quick. The food was delicious and great value - the set meals are great and they have the menu in several languages for tourists.

We found this place by chance and later realised it was highly ranked by TA. We must say the service rendered by the lady was perfect despite her limited command of English. We ordered the seasonal fish soup and some Aomori culinary specialties. Worth going for a try if you want fresh hot food!

We stopped here for lunch on a cold snowy day. The katsu curry was warm and comforting, and the ringo gyoza were delicious. It was quiet when we went, and the lady running the place was very nice. Good for cheap, tasty food in a comfortable atmosphere.

After reading several reviews in the Tripadvisor, this place was one of the must-visits during my trip to Aomori. However, this place was probably the only disappointing place among the recommendations I followed. That said, the butter scallop was fresh and worth ordering at this place as well as the fried scallop. The price is low to moderate.

Osanai was listed in the "Oden Guide" at the train station, so we gave it a try. It turned out that oden was just one item on a very large menu. The oden had a very tasty dipping sauce with miso and ginger, but the oden itself was nothing special. We also had a grilled sanma. The meat had turned... More

We stop at Aomori for one night on our way to Sapporo. That cozy place was worth it!!! Fresh fried scallop with set menu and raw tuna sashimi were awesome plates Super close to Aomori station.( see in the picture)

Definitely worth the visit and value for money! Had the butter scallop which was delicious. Felt the rice texture and fragrance was very different from Hakodate and it was good too. Also a must try is their gyoza! English menu are available too.

Try the ringo gyoza. Probably a unique offering from this restaurant. Offers good value, with fast service. Highly recommended by Aomori locals.
