After the lightness of being (apologizes to Milan Kundera) in the presence of the Kamakura Daibutsu and the Bamboo Grove at the Hokoku-ji (Temple) we were in the mood for some really good substantial food. What better than the Okonomiyake place we found down a side street in Kamakura.
The side street to the restaurant. Thank goodness I was with someone who reads and speaks Japanese.
Mixing the pancake batter with the other ingredients is serious business.
Be careful not to let too much batter run down the side of the mixing bowl.
The batter is then poured onto the greased grill.
Flatten the pancake as it begins to cook.
Okay, sit back and enjoy your beer....
Mom will take over for a bit.
Add some mayonnaise and bonita flakes which wave in the heat from the grill.
Ready to eat.
And a local beer to drink too.
A successful first course.....stay tuned.....
