Hiroshima-yaki @ Meguro, Tokyo

Hiroshima-yaki is literally coming from Hiroshima, the city in western Japan. It is like Okonomi-yaki, which is famous in Osaka and looks like pancake but not sweet, Japanese people eat it as a meal. Hiroshima-yaki looks more like crepes, and noodles and cabbage are cooked between them.

I went to "Issenbo," Hiroshima-yaki restaurant today at lunch time.  You can choose from 5 different toppings - basic (meet, egg, and noodle), with squid and green onion, with cheese and corn, with shrimp, and with kimchi. I chose the basic one - A set.


The chef cooks your Hiroshima-yaki on a big hot place in front of you. 

When it is served, put mayonnaise and ginger as much as you like, and cut with the scraper and eat it.

The sauce taste like the mix of Worcestershire sauce and ketchup. I like this taste very much. I got full with this big Hiroshima-yaki.

Issenbo (Hiroshima-yaki (Okonomi-yaki) restaurant)
Mon ~ Sat 10:30 ~ 23:00
1 minute walking distance from Meguro station
Good for solo, couple, with friends (Not so big)
No English menu, but I think easy to order with sample photos.

Check your mouth and teeth, a small piece of green laver might be on...  

Experience Japan!
