tsuruhashi fugetsu

We usually eat okonomiyaki at home, so it had been awhile since we'd eaten it at a restaurant.

We ordered the negi goma shoyu yakisoba, fried noodles coated with a sesame oil shoyu sauce then topped with lots of green onions....850 yen (about US$8.50)

This was good. There was also some squid and pork in there also.

We also ordered the fugetsu yaki, an okonomiyaki with pork, beef, shrimp, and squid....1130 yen (about US$11.30)

I should have taken a video of how they made the okonomiyaki.

Before they flipped it over (the first time) they put katsuo bushi (bonito shavings) on top, which sort of surprised me because I'm used to seeing the katsuo bushi dancing on the finished dish.

Having it under the sauce was delicious and their okonomiyaki has lots of cabbage.

Though the amount of mayo they put on top was a bit too much for our liking, we still enjoyed this.

With 2 glasses of umeshu (apricot liqueur)...our total was 2820 yen (about US$28.20).

Not bad for dinner.

That looks so good! I've been dying to try okonomiyaki. The ladies on Twitter don't help me any. They keep talking about how they make it at home and how delicious it is. I wouldn't even know how to begin preparing this dish. One day!!! /sigh....

¥2820 = US$34.80 at today's ¥81 yen rate. Big difference!

hope you get a chance to eat okonomiyaki Pocky :)

yeah yeah, I know Nate, but it is a pain in the A** to figure out the current rate...100 to 1 is way easier even if it isn't 100 to 1.

Take care you two.

Just type "2820 yen to dollars" into "the google" and it will calculate it for you. The dollar is going down the tubes, so the difference will only get larger...

What is it with the mayo in Japan? Seems people here love to over do it.

K and S said...

Thanks PB, and they wonder why they are "meta-bo"...

Take care.

Mine, mine, mine, mine! I have so many ingredients on the shopping list for more okonomiyaki, but ika not. I so love this dish - the best thing with this yucky cold weather.

K and S said...
