A great local restaurant for okonomiyaki *(Osaka-style) and monjayaki.*

*Okonomiyaki is a dish made from batter, cabbage, egg, and various meats and vegetables all mixed up and grilled on a hot plate like a pancake. Monjayaki (or simply, "monja") is similar to okonomiyaki except the batter is more runny and it remains lumpy when cooked.

You cook everything yourself using the hot plate grills on each table. Feel free to ask for advice if you're not sure how to cook something. But for okonomiyaki, generally you mix up all the ingredients in the bowl well and then pour it onto the well-oiled grill and shape it into a pancake. Cook until slightly brown before flipping and cooking the other side until nicely browned. You may choose to flip it one more time to let it cook a little longer. To finish, add sauce, mayonnaise, bonito flakes, ginger and nori seaweed flakes to taste before cutting it up and transferring it to your plate to eat.
