The place could be eaten delicious okonomiyaki in Tokyo even if you are bad cook of okonomiyaki

We went to Tokyo station. I rarely go there except taking Shinkansen.
When in the world will they finish construction aruond Tokyo station ? I think it’s been over 15 years ! I wonder if I could see completed Tokyo station area until we’ll die…

まだまだ続くよ東京駅周辺工事(´Д` ) というわけでめったにいかない東京駅へ!

Our target was okonomiyaki !
Kiji Marunouchi branch is in the building within Marunouchi area, close to Tokyo station.
This is a branch of Kiji (popular okonomiyaki restaurant in Osaka) in Tokyo.
Kiji’s branch is only in Shinagawa and this Marunouchi. And also we can enjoy Kiji’s tastes at “Santekan” in Roppongi

東京駅まで来たのは大阪に本店がある「きじ」に行くため!

Cool stripe-pattern table 🙂
And long hot plates over there.
I rarely go to okonomiyaki restaurant in Tokyo. The reason is only one.
Most of okonomiyaki restaurants in Tokyo don’t cook okonomiyaki. They just put ingredients on our table and we have to cook on our own.

Ningyocho : Okonomiyaki at Matsunami
Matsunami-style Okonomiyaki in Historic architecture Ningyocyo still have many old good restaurants and I had wanted to go to one of the restaurant that is named "Matsunami". It's an okonomiyaki ...
Osaka’s restaurants don’t. They cook and serve okonomiyaki.
I can’t cook okonomiyaki well, so whatever high reputation restaurants I may go, I have to eat bad tastes and looking okonomiyaki 🙁
But this Kiji cook good okonomiyaki in front of us and serve it to us. We only have to wait for a while 🙂

関東にある多くのお店が自分で焼かなければいけないのに対し、こちら、「きじ」は目の前できれいに焼かれるのをただ待ってればいいの!

After finished ordering Okonomiyaki, Sujipon (すじぽん, 570 yen) was served quickly. So we ate it while waiting okonomiyaki.
Sujipon is simmered tendon beef seasoned with ponzu.
The simmered beef was so soft and tasty. I love fatty part 🙂

時間がかかりますので、スジポン食べながらゆっくりと待ちます。やわらかくておいしいです。

After ten minutes or so, our okonomiyaki was served.
We ordered Sujiyaki (スジ焼き, 1200 yen) and pork and cheese (豚チーズ, 1060 yen). Those are Kiji’s No.1 and No.2 !
Because we were two and ordered two okonomiyaki, the chef cut those two okonomiyaki into half size in advance and served them to us like this.Beautiful ! Okonomiyaki should be cooked by chef all the same !

二人で2品頼んだら、半分に切ってハーフ&ハーフ状態にして出してくれました。きれーい!丁度良い焼き加減でオイシイ!

Each of okonomiyaki was perfectly cooked !
Cheeses were melting and the dough was soft ! The bacons had crunchy texture.

If you have no experience about cooking okonomiyaki and try okonomiyaki in Tokyo, you should go Kiji without hesitation.
Certainly cooking okonomiyaki is fun.But most of okonomiyaki restaurants in Tokyo are not inexpensive and prepare good ingredients.

Umm. Though I was satisfied with their okonomiyaki, I want to eat okonomiyaki at Osaka all the same 🙂

Osaka 2014 (4/15) : Teppanyaki Fukutaro as dinner (鉄板焼 福太郎)
