What is Okonomiyaki?

Want something fun and different to eat or looking for a flavorful, budget-friendly meatless meal? Try Okonomiyaki, a Japanese cabbage pancake.  The name is derived from the word okonomi, which means “as you like” or “to one’s liking” and yaki, which means “grilled”. The popularity of this pancake came about in Japan when food was scarce, and people had to feed their families with what little they had.
