Flipping, Topping, and Eating


And here it is!

We usually put Okonomi-yaki sauce, mayonnaise, dried bonito flakes, and green seaweed seasoning (青のり) on top of the Okonomi-yaki. And it is very very good!

Oh, and since I don't eat either meat or fish, I usually get something like the Curry Mix (curry powder, potato, cheese, etc.) or Mochi Cheese Mix. You can even order your own mix and put in whatever you like, which is great for vegetarians!


And what's so much fun about Okonomi-yaki is that you get to make it by yourself. You have to use the spatulas to flip the Okonomi-yaki over, which can be quite disastrous without the right balance!


What's also interesting is the way we cut the Okonomi-yaki. You can see below that it's cut like a pizza, which is how we cut it in the Tokyo area. This is because we eat Okonomi-yaki as the main meal and usually we share with others.

In the Osaka area, on the other hand, they cut it in small squares because there they consider the Okonomi-yaki only a part of the whole meal and many eat it along with rice!


But whatever they put in it or how they cut it, Okonomi-yaki is a delicious meal you can enjoy with everyone!

You had me until you said mayonaise! :) This looks like fun. If you can select some of your own ingrediants this would be the perfect dish for me (I'm very picky)!

It's so easy to make and I absolutely like this dish. It's always better with some dry fish flakes.

«Louis», being the world's biggest klutz, would flip it right into his lap...
