Ever since visiting the Okonomi-mura (Okonomiyaki Village) in Hiroshima with my boys and sitting at one of the 26 stalls, all serving basically the same dish, I knew I wanted to cook it. (It was so good we went back the next night as well.) I like that one city cooks a dish differently to the rest of the country - and much better. The separate layers are much better than just one pancake full of all the ingredients (often called Osaka style, I believe). I've experimented with few different recipes and find it quite difficult to keep flipping the ingredients several times (as ingredients fly everywhere) so I've come up with this one which minimises the number of flips, but still achieves the same result. I cook it on the flat grill of the barbecue and also put a baking tray on the open grill side of the barbecue to act as a second flat grill so I can cook two okonomiyaki at once.
