This is a must, but be warned that it is tourist overload anddddddd lines appear for EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE! Best to just walk around and get an idea of the type of food you want to try. It is definitely easier if you cant speak or read Japanese (they have English menus) but make sure it is the same price as local menu (we had to check a couple of times). They have pretty decent street food section; but watch out for the long queue.

The river walk is nice despite the people and chaos. Lots of quiet spots and interesting bars. An Osaka must.

Dotombori is a street chick full of food places. If you like tempura, octopus, crabs or eels, the choice is astounding.
We tried a couple of places and found the food of only average quality. Chicken almost fully cooked, beef that nearly took your teeth out to bite into, tempura which was mainly vegetables and all generally with little flavour.
I would look further afield in Osaka for places to eat (the Diamaru department stores have terrific restaurants).

If you want to try Osaka’s food specialities you need to go to Dotombori, a road very crowds where you can fine any food speciality from anywhere in the world, but above all osaka’s food, such as takoyaki, a meatball made with octopus inside.
