Japanese Pancake World

This one is in english cuz the website and the place are as well.
There is a lot more to japanese food than: sushi.

A fine example of that 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” (cf. yakitori and yakisoba). Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan, but is widely available throughout the country. Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region.

They serve 3 types of japanese pancake:
