1. Pancake Mandate
If you thought nothing could beat American-style pancakes with maple syrup and whipped cream, you probably haven’t tried okonomiyaki—the savory Japanese pancake that’s smothered in mayo and bonito flakes and stuffed chock full of shredded cabbage, green onion, octopus, shrimp and everything else but the kitchen sink. For some of the best in Osaka, head to fan favorite Mizuno, where you can customize your own Japanese yam-based pancake with all sorts of meat, seafood and vegetable fillings. The topping of seaweed powder, brown sauce and mayo is what sends this street eat
over the top.
