Craving Okonomiyaki

Okonomiyaki is one of those street food dishes that you see everywhere in Japan but is a very personal topic to all involved in making or eating them.  Today I decided to jump into the okonomiyaki pool with my own local Hawaii take on it using what I had in the fridge. 

Affectionately called "Japanese Pizza", okonomiyaki is essentially cabbage, flour, and eggs.  After that you add whatever your taste buds feel like having.  Today, that meant SPAM and mushrooms.

Prepping the "toppings"

I recommend you try this at home.  Once you figure out what you want on your dish, it's pretty simple and satisfying. 

Mix in with your cabbage, flour, water, and eggs
Griddle as you would a hamburger and add bacon
I used yakisoba sauce rather than okonomiyaki sauce as a personal preference
As you can see, the cabbage compacts nicely after it softens. 

Add Kewpie Mayo if you want to feel like you're in Osaka 

Thanks for playing
