One great thing about Osaka is that there is a much more vibrant night life compared to most other places in Japan, beer culture tends to make me feel a little more casual than intense like Tokyo.
After the great dinner at Kisuke, we went for a roam around the area and me being me, after the roam, and a proper run – I wanted to stuff myself with more snacks – enter Heizo-Chicken – which is just around the corner from the hotel.
Heizo-Chicken is just around the corner from the Intercontinental Osaka, and opens till late – it seems to mainly cater for beer drinkers (not me) – but on the outside of the store, there’s a little window for take away – perfect for my late night snack.
The selection is pretty simple – small, medium, large number of fried chicken – and a variety of other little things (mainly fried). Still being rational, I went for a small portion of fried chicken to take back to the hotel with me.
The chicken was quite soft, although with fried chicken, it’s really better to eat them fresh even when it’s just a 5 mins walk – the dough had gone a bit soft. Otherwise the taste was quite good.
I also managed to buy some whisky at the 7 eleven (Yamazaki – no year…but what the heck) – to have with some ice so that I can use the cool little ice bucket they had in the room.
Whilst Ms. Buddha and I enjoyed some of the chicken, we enjoyed our favourite activity of watching Japanese TV, the program that was on talked about a station master in rural Japan which has worked in the role for 70 years since he was like 20 – absolutely amazing!
