We saw an okonomiyaki restaurant. Okonomiyaki, which is said to have originated from Osaka, is a kind of Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients and is very popular in the Kansai region. The batter is made of flour, grated nagaimo (a type of yam), water or dashi, eggs and shredded cabbage, and usually contains other ingredients such as green onion, meat, seafood, vegetables, kimchi, mochi or cheese.
The restaurant looked very interesting, the patrons all ate in front of a giant hot grill plate. Food quality aside, this would a good dining experience.
