Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is a popular Japanese food, that’s somewhere halfway between a savory pancake and a cheese-less pizza.

Though I wasn’t able to visit Osaka or Hiroshima, where okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is especially famous, I was able try it at a restaurant in Tokyo known as Sometaro Okonomiyaki (染太郎).

Overall, okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is not my favorite Japanese food. Most of the time I would prefer to eat an oyako donburi (chicken rice bowl), or a piping hot bowl of street ramen, but that being said, the restaurant was fantastic and the atmosphere was amazing.

Have you had okonomiyaki before?
