Staple shop in historic Kyoto serving Okonomiyaki pancakes
Okonomiyaki is a type of Japanese pancake filled with vegetables and meat topped or cooked with egg yolk. It varies in style and specific ingredients from region to region in Japan, but this version in Kyoto is a favourite of mine, especially with a cool beer. This is handy as this is pretty much all that is served here(!), but this is good as they have perfected the art of this particular kind and it is a very good and reasonably healthy fix (less the beer), all for £5.20 is not bad. This version in Kyoto has the following ingredients: green onion, egg, sakura shrimp, bonito, red ginger, wagyu, konnyaku, grilled fish paste, tempura, flour, worcester sauce and seaweed. Trust me when I say this will be a welcome break from sashimi and traditional Japanese food when you need it(!) and the combination of ingredients and worcester sauce with the egg goes down very well. Just be aware of some of the motionless diners; that is all I will say(!).
