It does not matter if you are a first-time visitor or a twenty-year customer; you will find Okonomi-yaki a hit. Okonomi-yaki is a Japanese pancake made with flour, eggs, milk, chopped cabbage, green onions, and pickled ginger covered with brown sauce and topped with a blob of mayo. There are various Okonomi-yaki options such as beef, chicken, pork, bacon, vegetable, shrimp, squid, scallop, and seafood, but first-time visitors highly recommend the combination of beef and bacon. Other perfect options include Yakisoba, Beef Teriyaki, and Custard Pudding which is a popular dessert choice.
Okonomi House Restaurant is a spot for quick decent meals that are fresh, filling, and conveniently priced. It gets jam-packed during dinner time, so you might want to go for lunch. It is close to many shopping facilities and some theatres located in downtown Toronto so you can enjoy hanging out with friends after an exhausting shopping day or before watching a great movie.
