I will be visiting Japan for the first time in mid May to Osaka and Kyoto, and was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction. I am going mainly for food but am not budgeted to go splurging. I googled around and searched the board for a while and have not been able to find something that seemed like what I was looking for.
I am hoping to find something like an Izakaya that is somewhat English friendly. Also, i'm hoping to have a chance to taste horse meat, whale meat, ankimo and maybe shirako. I read in different places that horse meat you should be able to find more easily as whale meat seems to be harder to find and very restaurant specific. A place with all those on the same menu would be great, but I may be wishing for too much haha..
Thanks in advance for your help!
