Okonomiyaki is the dish of Hiroshima. A hearty soul food, Okonomiyaki is a savory pancake usually consisting of cabbage, pork, egg and noodles, such as soba or udon. This flexible dish can be found everywhere in Hiroshima, with over 2000 restaurants in Hiroshima City alone, with the famous “Okonomimura” building crammed with 4 floors of nothing but Okonomiyaki-dedicated eateries. To taste Okonomiyaki is to taste history, as it was this food that helped the city back on it’s feet after the war.
