Updated: 25 November 2017
Okonomiyaki is a savory grilled pancake similar to an omelette. This traditional Japanese dish can be made from all sorts of ingredients and flavors, and there are many regional variants. Osaka and the Kansai region are famous for their okonomiyaki, but Tokyo has a few top spots too.

Kiji

Restaurant, Japanese, $$$
Save to wishlist

A typical okonomiyaki restaurant just brings the batter to your table and lets you cook it yourself—locals will tell you that’s half the fun. But at this Osaka-born restaurant, all the hard work is done for you. Just order your favorite and have it expertly cooked by the chefs. Kiji is a perfect choice for those who are trying the dish for the first time. English menus are available.

Hiroki

Restaurant, Japanese, $$$
Save to wishlist

Hiroki is one of Shimokitazawa’s most beloved okonomiyaki restaurants. The menu here specializes in Hiroshima recipes, including Hiroshima okonomiyaki, a variant on the dish that uses the same ingredients as the typical Kansai-style pancake but layers them rather than mixing them. The result is a texture that’s less doughy.
