It differs from the popular Italian treat with a special composition of the filling, as well as an original way of cooking. The flatbread is fried a little, than the filling is spread. The filling includes mix of vegetables, meat, cheese, eggs, udon and seafood. After being fried thoroughly, bread is turned and fried on the other side. In local street cafes and restaurants okonomiyaki is cooked with a variety of fillings; cooks fry scones at small open braziers. In addition to the popular treat, you can order a variety of sauces.

Oysters with lemon and soy sauce are considered to be the true classics; those who are fond of more savory treats would appreciate oysters cooked in oil. Yellowtail rockfish, squid and octopus are among favorites in local menus; in the first half of the year anchovies are served in local restaurants.
