It might be the best comfort food about which you’ve never heard: Okonomiyaki. Translation: anything you like, grilled. Okonomiyaki is a cross between pancake and pizza, and in truth is pan fried. Topped with pork, cabbage, onion and smothered in a one two punch of savory okonomiyaki sauce and Japanese mayo. Delicious. Arigato Mei-san for the Japanese cooking lesson!
