広島風お好み焼き Hiroshima style okonomiyaki at Hiroshima station

By the time we were done with all our errands after arriving in Hiroshima I was starving. It was nearly 2pm and we hadn’t had lunch so I asked around at some of the information booths on where we could get some Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki, which my aunt and uncle were interested in trying. Turns out in Hiroshima station there was a place we could try it.

We split two. Both seafood specialties. I’ve had okonomiyaki before, several times, and I quite like it but the Hiroshima version was one of my favorites. The main difference between other versions of okonomiyaki and the one made and sold in Hiroshima is that it comes on a pile of noodles, in this case specifically yakisoba. It gives the omelet textured dish more of a crunch which is pretty satisfying. There are plenty of places to get good okonomiyaki in Hiroshima. We got ours in Hiroshima station because of the time tourist information didn’t think we’d find many places open. It was also my aunt and uncle’s favorite meal. They said they could’ve lived off of nothing by Hiroshima style okonomiyaki the entire trip. (We didn’t).
