Japan Okonomiyaki Kincsán

Japan Okonomiyaki Kincsán is a teeny-tiny fast casual restaurant specializing in, you guessed it, okonomiyaki—a traditional Japanese street food of grilled egg-and-cabbage pancake mixed with a host of savory ingredients. As in Japan, you can watch as they prepare your order on the electric griddle right before you.

Of the four options, “modern,” which reflects the preparation popular in Hiroshima, layers pieces of pork neck, ramen noodles, soy bean sprouts, and comes blanketed in a tangy brown sauce (€5). Instead of layering, the classic version (“Kansai“) mixes all ingredients together, and also includes yam, and a lattice-patterned mayo topping (€5). They’re both crunchy, and doughy, and wonderful. 

Whichever you pick, in true Japanese fashion, be sure to order it with bonito flakes (you will need to opt-in for this extra topping as the default version in fish-averse Hungary comes without it). A vegetarian options with tofu is also available (€5).
