Hiroshima: a pictorial with lots of words » OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As I mentioned, our first stop was at an okonomiyaki restaurant at the Hiroshima train station. Okonomiyaki originated in Osaka and most people like to call it a Japanese pancake. It does have dashi (fish) flavored batter that is mixed with cabbage and other vegetables as well as different meat, usually pork or shrimp. It is then topped with mayonaise, okonomiyaki sauce and fish flakes. Hiroshima okonomiyaki, or Hiroshimayaki, is also fried with soba noodles. I admit I prefer the Hiroshimayaki.
