Tonight’s dinner was a traditional Japanese homestyle dish called Okonomiyaki, which literally means “grilled how you like it“. It is a savory Japanese pancake that is grilled and almost always contains cabbage, buy can contain anything the cook wants to include. Tonight‘s version was very basic, including chopped cabbage, green onions, pickled ginger, thin sliced pork belly, all mixed in a savory pancake batter. This mixture is grilled or fried on both sides until done. Toppings include mayonnaise, a special okonomiyaki sauce, and katsuo bushi, which is dried bonito flakes. #okonomiyaki#japanesefood#cabbage#porkbelly
Our first visit to @themocknash tonight was a memorable one. We love @maneetchauhan's other restaurants here in #Nashville , @eatatchauhan and @tansuonash, so we had high expectations! 🍛🍲 High-end diner food might be our new fave. Comforting, yet full of flavor. Some highlights include the flavor on the okonomiyaki and the homemade crust on the pot pie!

Kintaro is probably my favourite Izakaya. The eel was so soft and tender. There was such a good balance between sweet and savory and fat a meet. The gyu tataki was really flavourful and the meet just kinda melts in your mouth. The tuna tataki was really fresh and the sauce was so tasty. I loved the sweet and sour. It matched so well with the tuna. The okonomiyaki was different from what I've had before. There's a bit more egg in it but still really tasty.
Loved everything there and would most definitely go back again.
Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki 🤤 I can totally have this for dinner again tonight. Got the loaded Kaisen (seafood), Chinchikurinyaki (ground beef) and the Hiroshima (w/ikaten). Apparently, this dish was made popular during WWII when staples like rice was in short supply 👍🏼 #japanese#okonomiyaki#japanesepancake 🇯🇵
