Hiroshima Okonomiyaki

Another Japanese food goal achieved today. Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki from a building I’ve read about that is just four level of Okonomiyaki restaurants.

This place (Okonomimura) was rather hard to find, but after a few minutes going in circles we found it.

The experience was amazing having so many places all making the same food and having it (then eating it) off the hot plate right it front of you is fantastic. Added to the theatre of the whole experience was having a TV in the background playing Japanese baseball.

Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki is make with a base of noodles and is not as creamy as the Kansai style that most people would recognise as Okonomiyaki.

Whilst the experience was great I’ll be honest admitting that I wasn’t overly impressed with my Okonomiyaki and somewhat disappointed. Just as it was almost cooked it was sprinkled with green (seaweed?) flakes that gave it a bit of a fishy aftertaste. I won’t be hurrying to try another, I’ll be sticking to the Kansai style.

Washed it down with a glass of the plumb wine liqueur. Now that is delicious.
