To experience the flavors of Senshu vegetables, The Brasserie is highly recommended.
For visitors who want to tuck in straight away or get that final taste of Japan before departure, the airport offers a wide range of excellent dining options covering a variety of Japanese dishes.
The Brasserie offers a buffet which is open all day for visitors. There are around 60 different dishes available with selections of Japanese and western style meals. Seasonal ingredients like locally sourced Senshu vegetables are used to create delectable dishes. Breakfast is served from 7 a.m. until 9 a.m., with lunch offered between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. (last orders at 2 p.m.). Dinner is available on weekends and national holidays between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. (last orders at 8:30 p.m.). The Brasserie is located at Hotel Nikko Kansai Airport (before security), which is right next to the train station.
Those seeking a great local delicacy, head over to Botejyu, which specializes in the Osaka-style okonomiyaki, a sort of savory pancake. Fresh cabbage and ingredients such as meat or seafood are mixed in with a special batter and cooked over a hot plate. A special sweet brown sauce is generously added with a dollop of mayonnaise and a sprinkle of powdered seaweed, creating a perfectly heartwarming dish.
For visitors without a lot of time, head over to one of the famous restaurants such as Sukiya and Nakau, which serve donburi, bowls of piping hot rice with shredded beef or egg and chicken usually, within 10 minutes of ordering. A quick, healthy fast-food option which hits the spot is the ideal meal for those itching to explore Japan right after landing or is tight for time before their flight departs.
