Pancake from Tokyo???


We have a kind of pancake, called “Okonomi-yaki”, which is one of the popular cuisine in Japan. The above photo is a typical Okonomi-yaki you can find at restaurants. I think many of foreigners who come to Japan will try this at least once. The good point of Okonomi-yaki is that customers are requested to cook that for themselves at restaurants. These restaurants has a special hot plate in the moddle of the table, where customers cook Okonomi-yaki. This is very enjoyable since people enjoy cooking together. No skill is needed for the cooking.

By the way, Okonomi-yaki is not from Tokyo, but from Western part of Japan. Tokyo actually has “Monja-yaki”, which could be seen as Tokyo version of the pancake. As a person who was born and has grown up in Tokyo, I advocate Monja-yaki more than Okonomi-yaki. How does it look like, and how does it taste? You can try that in Tokyo ! I will post the pics next time.
