hearty consumption: okonomiyaki.

Thursday August, 25, 2011

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning “what you like” or “what you want”, and yaki meaning “grilled” or “cooked”.


To satisfy a craving after months of yearning is a great accomplishment for the stomach – it’s all in a good days work to eat delicious food. anothercoldday accompanied me to eat this delicious savoury pancake and will continue with me on this journey of food-dom (like kingdom).

Mifune Don Restaurant
22 Peace Plaza
San Francisco, CA 94115
Neighborhoods: Pacific Heights, Lower Pac Heights, Japantown
Mifune Don is a quaint corner restaurant located in the Japantown Center.
BEWARE: Mifune does not serve okonomiyaki, but Mifune Don does serve okonomiyaki.

Tempura batter + California roll = Tempura sushi roll.
(second attempt to capture Mifune with the Tempura sushi roll, SUCCESS)
Beef + egg okonomiyaki and Pork + egg okonomiyaki
Suprisingly, annothercoldday and I concluded that both meat contained in the okonomiyaki tasted like their respective animal (cow and pig). It was a surprise because most of the time there is no distinct different between the two different meats, especially when it is mixed in batter and cooked with other ingredients. Also, the okonomiyaki presented to us was the exact duplicate of the picture posted on the wall – meaning: Mifune Don is consistent with their dishes.
The paper-like thing (not sure what it was) on top of the okonomiyaki moved around, this was due to the fact that the okonomiyaki was still pipping hot and the pan was sizzling.
