What food should I try in Tokyo and Osaka?

いお いお, Living in Japan

I grew up in Osaka and work in Tokyo. Try eating soba in Tokyo. Also, if there is a busy ramen shop, please try to enter. In Osaka, we recommend 551 meat buns that can be bought at large stations. Try to go to a slightly higher-quality Japanese set meal.
