À mi-chemin entre la galette et l'omelette, garnie de nombreux ingrédients et coiffé d'une sauce épaisse, l'okonomiyaki est une spécialité typique du Japon, tout particulièrement du Kansai et d'Hiroshima.

Variations of the Okonomiyaki

Although there are countless recipes and regional variations, the three most famous are those of OsakaHiroshima, and Tokyo.

  • In the Kansai style okonomiyaki, the tororo (grated yam, which gives a very sticky dough) is added to the basic mix. Sometimes grilled soba noodles (buckwheat) or udon (wheat) are also added, to make a modanyaki.
