This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

last week i decided to finally try to make okonomiyaki. originally introduced to it via the anime Ranma 1/2, but not actually tasted until our trip to Tokyo last spring. sometimes referred to as a japanese pizza, it is really not similar besides it's usually round shape.. it's much more akin to a korean pancake.
after finding an okonomiyaki kit at the local korean store, i decided to give it a shot. it came with engrish directions, and the flour needed as the base of the dish. which mainly consists of cabbage, green onion, and egg. oh and can't forget the bacon.. (recipe asks for sliced pork... same thing right?)
i have to say it turned out not too shabby.. and flipped much better than my first experience back in tokyo. i did have to purchase the okonomiyaki sauce separately.. but it is necessary.. also mayo is good on top too. success.
