The Okonomiyaki Stop

okonomiyaki-6After all the walks and tours, you just have to stop at some point. You just have to rest your aching feet and tend to your grumbling tummies. Right at that point, we came to this stop. A perfect one for this not only held good okonomiyaki but other delicious Japanese eats.

okonomiyaki-4The place looked big on the outside but once inside, it actually was packed. Like every corner was squeezed in to fit customers. But that’s probably the norm here. It still makes for a somewhat cozy dining experience. And I liked the whole bamboo enclosure. Though we were seated opposite another table, it was just us and that next table.

okonomiyaki-1So I have to explain that. No serving plates needed as they place your order there. It’s assured to be served warm. You can have the option to add sauce but for our dishes that night, no need for one (plus, the server said not to really add at all).

okonomiyaki-osaka-soba-1SO GOOD. Every bite was flavorful. This soba had pork, squid, shrimp, beef gristle and that sunny side up egg.

okonomiyaki-gyu-harami-grilled-beef-with-steak-sauce-1The beef here seemed to get lost in the other ingredients but that serving was enough for our group (can serve up to four). The sauce was very spot on to the tender beef.

okonomiyaki-rice-cake-and-cheese-on-okonomiyaki-1Sorry for the soba pieces. Hungry folks present here! Haha. Though considered as their number one okonomiyaki, it was a little plain for me. It was indeed gooey and cheesy but I wanted more filling and flavor in between.

okonomiyaki-ebisuyaki-1This was the real winner right here. I honestly wanted more of it. It was that good. It’s the filling okonomiyaki that I was looking for. With all that pork, squid, shrimp, beef gristle and green onion, yeah, I was one happy camper! πŸ˜€

okonomiyaki-10It was good to end yet another tiring night here. This one had a good location too as it’s fronting Dotonbori Canal. You can relax at one of the benches and admire the city lights after having a full meal.
