Hiroshima Okonomiyaki, also known as Hiroshimayaki, are among the most famous types of okonomiyaki you can find. While staying in Hiroshima, we decided to stop at the first okonomiyaki we found around the Okonomimura area and start shooting a short video for you, while our “chef’ cooked our “Japanese Pancake” in front of us.
Now to be fair, I am sure you could find much better okonomiyaki, and rest assured we will do our best to shoot another video in this manner, but, having our camera handy and our bellies empty we thought that it would make for some interesting video!
Now, did you know that the name ‘okonomiyaki’ comes from the term “Okonomi” which literally stands for “What you want”! Indeed okonomiyaki is in fact a savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients or, if you cook it yourself, anything that you want in it!
