In the meantime, I'm enjoying eating my knowledge around the regional foods of these current cities visited. Osaka has a few known specialties. One is the filling and flavor-filled okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is a savory pan-fried pancake consisting of batter and cabbage. The toppings vary to your preference, as "okonomi" translates to "to one's liking." It is said that this dish originated in Osaka. Other parts of Japan have variants of using noodles in the batter.
In Grand Front Osaka Mall, there are a few okonomiyaki restaurants. Momojuu is a great place to discover the dish or the eat it again in a fun, casual setting. The pancakes are cooked at your table so you get to enjoy the presentation and the heat of the food. If you're in Osaka, you have to try out okonomiyaki in a restaurant to fully appreciate the dish and the experience.
