OKONOMIYAKI IN HIROSHIMA - JAPAN
OKONOMIYAKI IN HIROSHIMA
Okonomiyaki is a Japanese pancake like dish containing a wide variety of fresh ingredients. In Hiroshima the ingredients are layered rather than mixed. Typically using a batter, cabbage, pork, squid, shrimp, noodles, egg and a generous amount of Okonomiyaki Sauce. In Hiroshima they use more cabbage which I like. The end product is lighter and fresher than what we have tried in Hawaii and to my surprise i finished the entire dish. It was just too good to leave on the plate. This was a great meal enjoyed in a very typical and local Okonomiyaki bar where Hiroshima locals eat and drink. The bar plays tribute to the Hiroshima Carps Baseball Team, the patrons are young and the beer is cold. Great place!
