Fodor's Review

Tucked away between the two buildings of the cutting-edge (yet very laid-back) Design Festa Gallery, Sakuratei also defies conventions—namely, that eating out doesn't mean you don't have to cook. At this do-it-yourself restaurant for okonomiyaki (a kind of savory pancake made with egg, meat, and vegetables), you choose ingredients and cook them on the teppan (grill). Okonomiyaki is generally easy to make, but flipping the pancake to cook the other side can be challenging—potentially messy but still fun. Fortunately, you're not expected to wash the dishes. Okonomiyaki literally means "as you like it," so experiment with your own recipe. But if you're feeling uninspired, you can always default to the house special, sakurayaki (with pork, squid, and onions) or monjayaki (a watered-down Tokyo variation of okonomiyaki from the Kanto region).
