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 restaurant.

人形町には昔からある建物のお店がいっぱい残っています。ここもその一つ。

Great architecture is 60 year old !

創業60年!(`・ω・´)

When we got to there without reservation just after the opening time, there was no guest there.
But the waitress said every seats are fully booked but we could stay 60 minutes or so

So we decided to enter the restaurant and eat okonomiyaki quickly.
The appearance have a nice atmosphere which reminds me of an ancient time.
(But if fire breaks out, it’ll disappear…. :()

ものすごく趣のあるお店(*´д`*)

Anyway we had no time to lose, we ordered drinks. My drink was lemon sour (レモンサワー)

Speaking of Okonomiyaki, we remember it is local foods of Osaka, Kansai. But Matsunami’s okonomiyaki differs from Kansai-style.

When you are in Osaka, you have no choice but eat okonomiyaki ! After enjoying USJ to our hearts' content, we went back to Namba that have our hotel. We took a night meal here. It is a restauran...

We chose Matsunami-yaki (松波焼き, 900 yen) and Naniwa-yaki(浪花焼き, 900 yen).

Matsunami-yaki have asari clam and green onions, and Naniwayaki have fish cake, Japanese honewort(mitsuba) and muscle of the clam.
The ingredients are differ from Kansai-style.  It looks like monja.
The way of grilling is same as the Kansai-style, but it looks lighter than Kansai-style.

焼き方は普通ですが、やはり、関西のお好み焼きよりもさっぱりとした見た目。

And we put soy sauce on it, not Worcestershire sauce like Kansai-style !

つけるのはソースではなくて醤油!Σ(´д`*)

It was unexpectedly good. But we also put Worcestershire sauce later, I think okonomiyaki go with worcestershire sauce better than soy sauce all the same.

And we ordered fried squids with butter (生イカバター, 750 yen)

なんか高い(ノ∀`)さすが人形町さすが老舗~

Of course it was tasty, but I think 750 yen is expensive for it. I know it is long-established restaurant in Ningyocho….but…

There were “oyster” on the menu, so we ordered it, but we couldn’t get it because it was for reservations only that day.
