Eating okonomiyaki (known to foreigners as Japanese pancake or Japanese pizza) at the Monja Street Tukushiya restaurant is a must try experience when in Tokyo. The bustling street with plenty of eateries is easily accessed via the Yurakucho and Oedo subway lines. Head to the end of the street and keep an eye out for the restaurant that has black and yellow curtains.
The name of the dish means “things I liked to be cooked” gives a vague idea of what ingredients it may have but it commonly has several ingredients like noodles, ham, cabbage, pork, kimchi, and tarako (caviar) mixed in with an egg based batter and cooked to a golden brown pancake consistency on top of a grill right in front of diners. A mixture of Kyupie mayo and sweet sauce is slathered on top to enhance the flavours. There are several kinds of okonomiyakis at Tsukushiya; the special modern yaki that has soba noodles, fried egg, and bacon added to the batter is highly recommended.
