Japanese Savory Pancake
Okonomiyaki is a savory pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning “what you like” or “what you want”, and yaki meaning “grilled” or “cooked”.
The ingredients and grilling style vary by region.
Though the Kansai- and Hiroshima-style are some of the most well known, distinctive okonomiyaki can be crafted by each household.
