        Love the okonomiyaki at Hagi. It's a like a deep dish okonomiyaki, and they include the kewpie mayo on the side, so it doesn't get watery/cooked out

          goooood, sounds fun. any specific to regional style of okonomiyaki? is it the one that is mixed or more hiroshima-style, more layered?

            I believe it's more layered, and you can get a couple of kinds of protein mix ins (pork belly, seafood, etc). Just seems to be much thicker/more substantial than other variations i've seen at Izakaya's.

              The okonomiyaki at Hagi isn't any particular style. It's probably closest to Kansai style served on a hot plate. But kind of a poor version IMO. It never develops a crispy crust, since it seems that it doesn't get hot enough, so it just ends up being a gewy mess. It has the basic flavor of okonomiyaki, but that's about it. I'm not sure I can recommend any place for okonomiyaki, except maybe Otafuku, but I haven't had theirs in a while.
