Japanese pizza or pancake is probably the easiest way to explain what Okonomiyaki is. There are mainly two types, Kansai (Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto area) or Hiroshima-style. Kansai-style is a mix of flour, cabbage, egg, meats or seafood and looks like a thick pancake. Hiroshima-style has soba (egg noodles) & shredded cabbage in between a thin layer of crepe. There are only a handful of okonomiyaki restaurants in Tokyo as good as the one's in Kansai or Hiroshima, and BUCHIUMAYA at Shinjuku is one of few good Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki restaurants.

Okonomiyaki is cooked on a teppan (large iron plate) right in front of you. Crape will be made by using okonomiyaki batter first and right next to it soba will be cooked. Once the soba is ready then it will go on top of the crape. Shredded cabbage, bean sprouts, 2-3 slices of pork belly, and ikaten (dry squid tempura) will be added on top. Next okonomiyaki batter will be on top of this. They will flip the okonomiyaki a couple of times so it will cook evenly and then pressed by covering it with a round iron presser.

When its ready to serve, okonomiyaki sauce (sweet dark sauce made out of fruits, vegetables and meats) and aonori (green laver) will be added. The most popular okonomiyaki is Nikutama (Plain okonomiyaki) for 850 yen.

Instead of using chopsticks to eat it, you use a KOTE (iron spatula).

My favorite is NEGI KAKE TSUKIMI NIKUTAM (Okonomiyaki with green onions & fried egg) for 1,200 yen. Egg's used all have two egg yolks in one egg.

If you don't want a fried egg, but like green onions then try NEGI KAKE NIKUTAMAi (Okonomiyaki with green onions) for 1,150 yen.

They also have original okonomiyaki's like MOCHI CHEESE NIKUTAMA (Okonomiyaki with cheese & sticky rice cake) for 1,350 yen. You can also choose either soba or udon (white thick noodles) for noodles inside your okonomiyaki, but soba is more common and popular. The above Mochi Cheese Nikutama has udon in it.

Buchiumaya use to be open for lunch, but since they have become so popular the owner/chef was over worked and they are only open for dinner now. If you wanna try Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki in Shinjuku, Buchiumaya is probably the best place to go and even my friends from Hiroshima all agree with me.

I'll be introducing another Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki at Shinbashi in the future and Kansai-style place soon.
