November 12, 2010: Hiroshima Okonomiyaki

November 12, 2010

Yesterday, Yoshio and I shot the 20 step process to making Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki. Shown above is the final step with Chef Saito finishing off the okonomiyaki with a sweet mayo on top of the okonomiyaki sauce (an apple-based Worcester sauce.)

These treats are very popular in Hiroshima, where on average, a person might have them twice a week. It’s considered “fast-food” in Hiroshima, but it is made fresh and to order with hundreds of combinations of meat, seafood, egg, cheese, fried noodle, cabbage, bean thread, and topped off with sauce/mayo over the okonomiyaki “crepe” made with fish stock and flour.
