I'm half Japanese/half Aussie and have been a foodie ever since I could remember. I love accompanying delicious dishes with amazing, refreshing drinks on my nights out.

I've been a guide for more than 3yrs in Osaka (and living more than a decade here). Having an intrepid character, I have scoped out the most hidden backstreet restaurants & bars providing the most authentic, local experience for you..... I'm eager to show YOU:)
