Sennariya (Kuromon Ichiba Market): Osaka 2017

If sushi isn’t your thing and you find yourself in Kuromon Ichiba Market, all is not lost. They also grill up pretty much any kind of seafood that you can imagine. Sennariya is one such shop where you can find grilled seafood.

You can’t miss this place. The front of the shop displays the various shellfish that’s available and they grill everything up on the spot. It’s a good gimmick as the aroma of freshly grilled seafood pulls customers in.

The grill isn’t large so there’s a bit of a wait if they’re busy. Just point to what you want, pay them, and they’ll give you a number and deliver your food to your table.


This shop is actually quite large and has plenty of seating in the back. After perusing the rest of the store, you’ll quickly discover that Sennariya is more like a grocery store as they sell a variety of food… not just grilled seafood.

One of the popular items that you’ll see in many of the stores at Kuromon is the crab shell filled with a concoction of creamy pasta, crab and corn (500円). After it’s grilled up, the cheesy mixture melts up and delivers a light but delightful treat. We also ordered a fresh whole scallop (500円) that’s simply grilled with green onions… you have no idea how good this was.


Afterwards, we also ordered a grilled oyster (1000円) that was superb. It was a bit on the expensive side but it was rather plump and large.


Given that most food stalls in the market don’t have seating, this store is great because there’s plenty of communal seating. The variety of grilled items is also quite good but it can get busy here.
