551 Horai specialises in barbequed pork buns and has over the years become the most famous among its counterparts in Osaka, selling more than 110,000 buns every day. Filled with diced pork and minced onion, each barbequed pork bun is handmade in front of the customer, which makes for a unique experience for travellers.
If you're in a hurry, you can always take nikuman, or dumplings, to go. If you, on the other hand, have enough time, you could do far worse than to try out their crispy noodles and rice with a Chinese omelette. Also recommended is the Horai 551 set, which includes shrimp and small meatballs.
