Let’s meet at the kitchen on more time to learn about Okonomiyaki, a Japanese savory pancake containing a variety of ingredients in a wheat-flour-based batter; it is an example of konamon. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning “how you like” or “what you like”, and yaki meaning “cooked”.
