Shin-Umeda Shokudo-gai has the image of a Showa-like old-fashioned restaurant district. In this area, which is a bit difficult to enter, there is a famous Thai restaurant. The restaurant is…
MIURAYA THAI Restaurant｜The heretic of Thai restaurants rising in popularity in Umeda, the heart of Osaka.
It is a small restaurant with a counter seating five to six and three to four tables for four people. Miuraya Thai Restaurant, with its slightly izakaya-like atmosphere, is a true “diner” of Thai cuisine that attracts many one-person customers and female customers as well.
It is not the kind of restaurant where you can relax and enjoy Thai food in an ethnic atmosphere with a Singha beer in your hand, like other restaurants around Umeda Station. Instead, it is more like a ramen shop in front of the station, where you can enjoy a quick meal in transit… and it just so happens to be Thai food. It is more like a Thai restaurant that is integrated into the lifestyle of Japanese businessmen.
You must try this first at Miuraya Thai Restaurant! Overwhelmingly popular Green Curry
Here is the overwhelmingly popular menu at Miuraya Thai Restaurant…
Thai curry originally means “gaeng,” which means soup, and it seems that Thai curry is a name given by the Japanese. This gaeng is mainly divided into three types according to color: red, yellow, and green, and they are called red curry, yellow curry, and green curry, respectively.
Although one might imagine red > yellow > green as the order of spiciness, green curry is actually quite spicy. This is because the green color is made from green chili peppers produced in Thailand.
As an example, the green curry at Miuraya Thai Restaurant is also quite spicy. However, it is neutralized by the sweetness of coconut milk, so while it is hot and spicy, the sweetness spreads softly in the mouth. It is quite an addictive tasting curry.
When you spoon the sea of green curry, several chunks of chicken thigh meat come gurgling out from inside. After all, you don’t feel like eating curry without meat, do you? The rice is not Thai rice, but the curry tastes just like the green curry you would normally eat in Thailand.
Stir-fried air-cured greens with oyster sauce that you must try when you visit Thailand.
Stir-fried Chinese cabbage may not be part of the general image of Thai food, but it is available in many places in Thailand and is very tasty, so please keep it in mind when you travel to Thailand in the future.
This stir-fried water spinach is also available at Miuraya Thai Restaurant.
The crunchy texture of the water spinach and the flavor of the garlic and oyster sauce are pleasant, and the chopsticks go on and on. The volume of the dish is a little short for the price, but since it is said that water spinach is not so abundant in Japan, it can’t be helped that the price is a little high….
Miuraya Thai Restaurant is located in the Shin-Umeda Restaurant District, right in front of Hankyu Umeda Station!
