grill de kamaya

kamaya Next door to Irish Curry is Grill de Kamaya.

There is a large kama (oven/kiln) in the middle of the restaurant. Perfect for winter, but not really for summer.

We sat closer to the large open window/door at the front of the shop, the place was quite homey with lots of wooden tables and chairs.

There was another kama behind Satoshi but it wasn't in use, they said they only use it to smoke meats in it.

kamaya (3) We started off with some salmon carpaccio, fresh and delicious.

kamaya (4) Next an order of shin-tamanegi (spring onions). These were either roasted or braised.

Sweet and tender.

kamaya (5) We tried their cumin lamb.

This was grilled.

Tender and very flavorful.

kamaya (6) Next an order of their shiitake.

I think this was braised.

Lots of garlic and chili...yum!

kamaya (7) And to finish an order of their seafood paella.

This was not as flavorful as the other dishes, but a nice end to a great meal.

For all these dishes and 2 glasses of wine...4100 yen, not bad.

kamaya (8) As we walked back, we noticed this tako (octopus) slide...so Osaka!

We'll be back.

The seafood paella looks good! Wait a second, that octopus slide looks so similar.... either I've been there or I have seen the same one in another park!!!!

K and S said...

I think this is the only park with a tako, Nami, so maybe you did come here?!

Take care.
