Okonomiyaki



Really easy and quite tasty. There are two basic styles, one the Osaka and Hiroshima styles with the former having the batter mixed together and the latter being a layered 'pancake'. I made the Osaka style with chopped shrimp, thin sliced squid, dried small shrimps, green onion and thin sliced ****ake and some thin sliced pork on top.

Essentially you make a batter, add your ingredients, fry it up (medium-low flame) until browned, flip it and then top with Okonomiyaki sauce, Mayonnaise, powdered Nori and Bonito flakes just before serving. The only major problem I had was securing the Mountain Yam. I substituted the best I could with grated white yam, Batata and a little Corn Starch but am going to request the Oriental store to get some in as it really appears key to pulling off an authentic version. However, it still came out really good. Lots of Cabbage is key as well, finely shredded!

Had it with some Dinkle-Acker that a friend gave me. This is a really good beer food!

Yeah I was going to misspell it purposely as Shiitake like one member did, but left it.

It's a really good and simple dish. Perfect on a cold night with a nice beer!

It does in a way, but the flavor is much different. What is weird is that even though the bulk of it is Cabbage, it really didn't taste at all like Cabbage! I suppose though, that is in part because there are quite a few intense flavors going on there.

Had that at a local japanese restaurant (next door to and owned by one of the best sushi restaurants in town, this is a smaller, more authentic style) after seeing Anthony Bourdain eat it during his japan trip. It is like half way between breakfast and dinner, the eggs with what amounts to japanese bbq sauce is yummy!

No recipe for the batter from the link.

What kind of batter is it? Pancake batter? Fish and chips batter?
