Why don't you enjoy Okonomiyaki, a kind of Japanese-style pancakes and our ordinary food?
Okonomiyaki is made from egg, flour, pork, shrimp, squid, chopped cabbage and katsuobushi(dried bonito flakes) on its top.
You can enjoy baking it by yourself:)
I or my friends can go with you after 8pm after my work.
Let's meet at the landmark place and go to the Okonomiyaki restaurant together!
You can choose your convenient place from Ginza, Shinjuku,Shibuya.
The fee is not including food and drinks.
Average okonomiyaki dinner would cost
around 3,000yen per person including drink.
Mariko and her friend Yoko made my first evening in Tokyo extra special. They met me in my hotel lobby in Shinjuku, very punctual, and already had a plan for the restaurant we were going to visit. Apparently, this was a local hotspot that has been receiving great reviews. I would have never found this on my own, as the signage was entirely in Japanese.
The okonomiyaki dinner was a great interactive experience, since you sit over a hot griddle and watch your pancake cook in front of you. We had lots of other goodies, like beer, shochu, plum wine, salad, omelet and monjayaki, a Tokyo style savory pancake.
Mariko speaks excellent English and has a great personality, we got along great right away. I felt like I was at home having a girl's night out, except, well, I was in Japan and the food was 100 million times better than in the US.
The price for the dinner even includes the food and drinks, so it's a total steal. They even walked me back to my hotel and gave me a lesson on how to shop at my local Lawson convenience store, with an explanation of all the onigiri and sweet snacks on display.
Mariko wasn't available but she kindly organized her friend Guts to take us instead, which was great service.
Guts was fantastic, very friendly and he bought along a friend as well which made the whole experience even better.
We had a great time in a local Izakaya style restaurant.
Guts also showed us a local night market on the way to the restaurant, which was very helpful as we went their the following night.
Highly recommended and a memorable experience.
