Super popular Okonomiyaki restaurant from Osaka. We went around 5:30pm on a weekday and luckily there was no queue yet but the seats were already half-filled. After that the queue just kept getting longer and longer. They don't take reservation so there is no other easy way other than going early on a weekday or be patient and queue. Once you are inside though, the atmosphere is quite relaxed and the waiters won't try to hurry you or anything. All the food are cooked in the kitchen and delivered to your hotplate table for you to sprinkle seaweed or katsuobushi on top. The food are very nice in general, despite they are slightly on the salty side. Not the harder, more solid okonomiyaki I am familiar with, but the soft and liquidy kind. Other than the regular "sauce flavour", which is easy to get tired of cos it is so sweet, you can also choose "Salt" or "Soy sauce" or "Ponzu" for some items. Four of us shared all the food and with 2-3 drinks each, it was about 2500yen per person.

Menu(J): 1, 2.

They are all cooked in the kitchen but we added some of the toppings(seaweed etc) and cut ourselves. Potato is carb but it is also vegetable...^^;;;

Potato!? Isn't that kind of carb + carb.
I can't tell, the pix looks like you guys cook them yourself but you said they're cooked in the kitchen.
they look so nicely made compare to the ugly ones we did...^^;;

わたしも「ゆかり」が一番好き!
香港の友達を連れて行ったよ。
でもお好み焼きそのものが好きじゃないみたいで、
評判良くなかった、、、

「きじ」も美味しいと思ったよ~
カーブ是非行こうぜ。

そういえば、この頃、お好み焼き行脚しましたねぇ!!
ワタシは「ゆかり」が一番好みかなぁ。
「きじ」は生地がカナリゆるめでしたもんねぇ~
次回はカープ@神田にレッツGO!
