OKONOMIYAKI

お好み焼き[OKONOMIYAKI]

A savory pancake mixed with an egg, cabbage, etc., cooked on a griddle and garnished with sweet okonomiyaki sauce. The recipe varies depending on the region. Characterized by its appetizing rich aroma, okonomiyaki is pleasing not only to the palate but also for the eyes. In some restaurants the chefs cook okonomiyaki in front of the guests like an entertainment show while in other restaurants the guests make their own. Dads can get a lot of respect from their children if they can flip okonomiyaki intact.
