お好み焼き 美津の Mizuno – Osaka

One of the spots where everyone says you should eat Okonomiyaki is Mizuno, near Dotonburi.  Sure enough, when you walk down Dotonburi and you take a slight side road, you will find this small place.  I believe it’s two levels, but we sat on the first level and it was quite small, seating about nine persons at the Okonomiyaki grill.

As you walk in, you see the counter and a chef cooking Okonomiyaki.  We took our place at the grill.

IMG_1750 They do have an english menu, but they also have a menu of the Top 5 Okonomiyaki that is ordered.  You can choose that and you can also choose whatever you want inside.  That’s the meaning of Okonomiyaki, cooked to whatever you like.

We decided to choose one which was number four on the list, it had pork and squid.  Let’s see!

We thought that they would be making ours right in front of us, but we were wrong.  They did it off to the side, luckily we took pictures of everything!

The ingredients came out here.  We weren’t quite sure which one was ours, because we weren’t sure and they all seemed to have pork and squid.

We thought it was quite interesting that they put noodles on it.  Underneath it was cabbage and some other things like flour and yam, etc.

They were also cooking to our right.  On the far side was another one with cabbage and with pork and squid.  In the front on the left is a kimchi one.  And then one with  a lot of green onions!

Here is the one with noodles on it, flipped over.

Little did we know, this was ours!  We were a little surprised that there were noodles.  But, worth a try!

In addition, they cracked an egg on top and then they flipped it again and again.

From there the chef asked us what kind of sauce we wanted, regular or sweet.  We went for sweet.

Then a layer of mayonnaise.

And finally some seaweed powder and another dash of sauce.  Ready to eat!

They leave it on the grill in front of you and you each get a little spatula.  It’s help yourself after that.

Check out the nice pieces of squid inside!

A nice experience!  Next time, we try the make your own!
