3 okonomiyaki you should eat at Sogetsu restaurant

1.Buta Tama

Butatama, pork okonomiyaki is the most common okonomiyaki. it makes mainly of pork meat, egg, and cabbage. When finishing to grill, pour special source, and add dried bonito flakes and green laver on the top.

2.Ika Dama

There is no big difference from the previous one, but Ika dama contains squid instead of meat, so we recommend it for seafood lovers and people who are not good at law fish. The soft texture is very addictive.

The shop owner’s wife was very friendly and helpful when I tried to cook Okonomiyaki by myself. Also, she expressed she was willing to welcome foreign tourists. Because she can customize ingredients just for you depending on your preference, let her know if there are ingredients you can’t eat or dislike.


Actually, although I am not a native Osaka person, now I love it since living. I have ever visited there many times. Usually, I chose butatama but I tried negiyaki for the first time when the interview. As a result, my opinion is changed, that I think this is one of the best okonomiyaki in my life because I feel great harmony of Negi and original soy sauce when eating. That’s why my recommendation is Negiyaki.
