Okonomiyaki

The Eatery

This is the first restaurant I tried out after the dine-out event. This is cool and funky Japanese restaurant. It has a huge TV inside and outside playing Japanese animations, a very colorful theme color inside, and some fish and octopus hanging from the roof. Sounds quite special for a Japanese restaurant, right?
As for their food, both the quality and portion are pretty good! I tried and liked their Erotica Roll, Drunken Monkey Roll, and Fat Elvis. Also, their Mixed Seafood Okonomiyaki was tasty with seaweed and mayo sauce. This one is my favorite!

Do you guys know which other places have GREAT Okonomiyaki?

judging by his sig, i would guess van-city...

unfortunately, there isn't too many places with decent okonomiyaki in toronto.. instead, my friends from osaka, hiroshima and saitama decided to have an okonomiyaki party so i can try the real-deal gyu-ten okonomiyaki.

oiishikatta!

Wow. I was thinking of posting about where I could find a place to try okonomiyaki in the GTA, but never got around to it until now.

I guess I'll just wait until I find a place that cooks/serves it well.

there's this place by bay and bloor (actually a little south of bloor) that has this and I went a couple of times with my gf last year, they specialize in this and they actually have a few bar chairs just like in Japan and you can watch the chef cook it. It comes in a few "flavours" like chicken, beef, shrimp but I guess they taste pretty much the same. There's some other stuff on the menu like teriyaki chicken, beef which isn't bad either.

I don't remember the price but I went during lunch and it's not expensive

I'll try to get the name of the place next time I go

Thanks for the heads up! If I'm ever around that area, I'll keep an eye out for the place.

Wasabi has them too, and they suck (and here comes the obligatory agreements on how much they suck by trueno92).

hahahah damn, you guys are getting to know me too well!

agreed, they suck. and wasabi as a dining establishment sucks.

and no, just slathering a chinese pancake with tonkatsu, mayonaise and sprinking it with katsuobushi doesn't make it okonomyaki......
