Fodor's Expert Review Okonomi Mura
In this enclave 20 shops serve okonomiyaki (literally, "as you like it grilled") Okonomiyaki is best described as an everything omelet, topped with bits of shrimp, pork, squid, or chicken, cabbage, and bean sprouts. Different areas of Japan make different okonomiyaki; in Hiroshima the ingredients are layered rather than mixed, and they throw in lots of fried noodles. Seating in these lively shops, which are generally open late, is either at a wide counter in front of a grill or at a table with its own grill. This complex is near the Hon-dori shopping area, just west of Chuo-dori.
