Okonomiyaki is a type of Japanese savory pancake filled with cabbage and a topping of your choice. This is one of the most delicious types of Japanese cuisine; translated into English, okonomi mean ‘as you like it’ and yaki , means ‘grilled’. Okonomiyaki is thus a very personal meal, which you can really make your own and often even have a go at cooking yourself.
Okaru is a typically small Japanese restaurant located in a side street in Namba. The restaurant is famous for its artistic nature: after your okonomiyaki is done, the chef comes around and draws a character, like Snoopy or a flower, on your okonomiyaki with mayonnaise. The restaurant has been around for over sixty years now and you can complete you okonomiyaki with two toppings.
