Kyoto and Osaka

Hey guys,

I am going to be going to Kyoto and Osaka October 10th to 15th.

I've been going through every single post on these two cities and still have a lot of questions.

Are would be the exceptional Ramen/Udon/Curry/Izakaya/Yakitori restaurants in Osaka?

I'm trying to keep the budget down so I am possibly going to go to Giro Giro and Nishiki in Kyoto which are both supposed to be quite exceptional for the price.

Would a Bento from Kitcho be worth it? Are there any Kaiseki bento that would be recommended? Or a cheaper lunch.

Are there any depachika that have a lot of french patisseries in either city? Or any depachika which are recommended? We went to Tokyo last year and Isetan Shinjuku was amazing!

Any other general recommendations?

Thanks and sorry about the large number of questions!
