Enjoy authentic Western food at LION KITCHEN, popular for its cute mural illustrations

February 22, 2021 open

LION KITCHEN opened in 2021 in the Demachi Masugata shopping street. What stands out among the brightly lit interior are the animal murals by Tomonori Taniguchi, an acclaimed picture book artist. Enjoying the cute illustrations while looking at them are Western-style dishes such as loco moco and omelette rice, which can be ordered anytime during business hours, and the famous moist banana cake, which was popular in Osaka as well.


Among them, the ground minced beef for hamburgers is made from shank meat, which has a concentrated flavor of both beef and pork. In order to balance the flavor of both, they have it ground at a ratio of one to one. The restaurant can be used for both solid meals and café use, making it useful for daily use.


Daisuke Yakura, owner of the restaurant.
After graduating from Doshisha University and working for a company, he entered the restaurant industry. 2012, he opened [LION KITCHEN] in Nishi Ward, Osaka City, and moved there in 2021.
