Okonomiyaki is the epitome of Japanese soul food—a griddled pancake made of a mix of vegetables, egg, and meat or seafood, and topped with things like bonito flakes, Japanese mayo, nori, and ginger. The dish may have originated in Osaka, but it was perfected at Mizuno, a family-run restaurant that's been in the business for over 65 years. The restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients to make their coveted menu item, their most famous being their yam-flour okonomiyaki with pork and scallops. The line is often long, but trust us—it's worth the wait.
