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…
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
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.
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 🙂
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 🙂
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 !
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 🙂
