Okonomiyaki, sometimes called Japanese pizza or Japanese pancake, is one of the best dishes to make if you’re a beginner japanese cook. It exposes you to a lot of classic Japanese ingredients, but it is very easy to make well and is very flexible in terms of what you put in the okonomiyaki.
This recipe is inspired by my recent trip to Osaka (see link to my Osaka vlog below), and this particular style of okonomiyaki is a dish that Osaka is known for. It’s the perfect combination of salty-sweet-umami-creamy…yum!
