Ogosso is a Japanese restaurant where you can fully enjoy Shinshu's local fresh food. The restaurant's name comes from Nagano dialect's, "Ogosso-sama," same as "gochiso-sama" used to give thanks after a meal. We recommend Oyako-don (chicken and egg bowl) and ramen for lunch, and, for dinner "Gitaro shamo chicken" typically served as nabe (hot pot). This shamo chicken has umami and a good texture and tastes perfect with local sake. It is also famous among locals for its best quality cuisine with a reasonable price.

Varied Menu with Selected Ingredients
This restaurant used to be a sushi-go-round restaurant, which the current owner bought and renovated. Probably that's why there is a large round counter table. They are proud of the cuisine like "Gitaro shamo chicken" selected free-range fed poultry. But they have various other menus with selected quality ingredients, such as curry, grilled fish, ramen, rice gratin, and so on.
Highly Recommend Super Oyako-don (Chicken and Egg Bowl)
Super Oyako-don (chicken and egg bowl) limited to only 20 servings a day is the supreme oyako-don of which chicken wing is char-grilled resulting in the meat to just fall off the bone and topped with fluffy eggs. Indeed it tastes fantastic as it is, but with Kuro-shichimi (Japanese spice mix) from Kyoto, the taste gets perfectly spicy to bring out its umami better.
If You Want to Taste Fresh Shamo Chicken, Try "Gitaro Shamo-suki!"
Gitaro shamo-suki (sukiyaki tasted shamo-chicken pot) (3,800 yen for two) is a popular menu at all times of the year. Because this shamo-chicken is fresh from the farm and tastes good, many of their regular customers order repeatedly. The owner-chef will prepare it for you over the counter, so don't worry how you eat, ask him anytime.
