Welcome to Okonomiyaki World!
What is Okonomiyaki? (お好み焼き) It's a traditional Japanese
food that is sometimes called "Japanese Pancake" or "Japanese Pizza".
It's a savory dish that is a bit more like an omelette or frittata than
a pancake and it's made with okonomiyaki flour, eggs, cabbage, pork (bacon),
shrimp or other seafood, and topped with a variety of condiments like
sweet sauce (Okonomi Sauce), mayonnaise, dried seaweed and dried fish
flakes. Now... that may not sound very appetizing, but it turns
out to be an INCREDIBLY
DELICIOUS dish - crispy on the outside and soft inside. What could be better than Japanese food plus Bacon? If
