Tiffy in Japan | Okonomiyaki

Tiffy's Stay in Japan
Trip to Kyoto

A week before I went to Kyoto with my friends, a bunch of them went to an okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) restaurant here in Nagoya. But then something came up and I wasn't able to go. I didn't really know what it was back then. But my friend told me that it's a Japanese pancake.

So then when I went to Kyoto and my friends who live there asked me what I wanted to eat, and I told them that I wanted to try okonomiyaki. And so we did.

Since it's cheap (we shared an order of okonomiyaki and yakisoba), we decided to go there earlier in case there were a lot of people in line. And there were! This was the line to the door. We got there at around 6 and got seated at around 7:30.

I'm not sure exactly what was in our okonomiyaki -- I remember that Maki, one of the exchange students from the Philippines just asked me if I wanted it sweet or spicy. And since I wasn't sure how spicy their spicy is, I said sweet. If I remember correctly, the okonomiyaki had pork, cabbage, and probably some other vegetables. Okonomiyaki generally differs from region to region. And from what I heard, Osaka is known for its okonomiyaki.
