In The Works


Have you ever had Okonomi-yaki?

It's very popular in Japan, and there are different ways of making it depending on the region. This is the bowl filled with various ingredients that the staff bring to you when you order. From the top is Beef/Green Onion (牛スジねぎ焼き), Pork/Kimchi (豚キムチ焼き), and Mochi/Cheese (もちチーズ焼き). I like how colorful every bowl looks!



And what we have to do is, although the bowl is close to over flowing, we need to mix everything until it looks like this, below. There is a flour mix in the bottom of the bowl and you need to mix it all up before grilling it on the pan.

This process takes some time, which I'm sure the store does on purpose, to make us all even more hungry!


Tune in tomorrow for the Okonomi-yaki after it's done!

This looks very good. Is there a vegetarian version?

I’ll have the mochi and kimchi, please.

Today, many of us might not spend much time here. You have made us so hungry we will run off to the kitchen or out to a restaurant, pronto.

It looks.... Yummy!

This looks similar to bibimbap, a Korean dish. My wife is Korean so I've certainly had that!

yup kaori! it's true yummy-ness! ^0^
in fact, we do our home made version of okonomiyaki, even it doesn't taste like one.
(it's hard to find an authentic one.) ^-^ that;s what you call desperate! lol

Thank you for the comments everyone! I've just posted todays photo :D

Tall Gary, doesn't the mochi and kimchi mix look good? I also like the curry mix, which is a weird fusion of India and Japan :D

Al, I've had Bibimpap too! That is SO good! The way we mix it in the bowl is very similar :D

Babzy, I'd love to see your photos of the temaki zushi! Hope you have fun making and eating it :D
