Tokugawa (Hawaii 2017): Okonomiyaki
During our trip to Japan last year, we tried many classic Japanese dishes including okonomiyaki (a popular grilled pancake filled with savory ingredients). While we enjoyed our meal at Toradyu Okonomiyaki, we had to make the okonomiyaki ourselves (which is quite a bit of work). So when we saw that we could get okonomiyaki made for us at the Shirokiya Japan Village Walk, we jumped at the opportunity.
As I’ve mentioned previously, the number of dining options available in the newly renovated Shirokiya Japan Village Walk at the Ala Moana Center is staggering. We ordered a Tokugawa Special with Noodles ($11.50) at the Tokugawa stall. This is one of their pricier options (most running around $7-9) as it comes with shrimp, squid, pork and noodles.
They grill up the okonomiyaki fresh, right in front of you, so it can take a while for this to be made. Served on a sizzling hot plate, this okonomiyaki had a nice crispy layer due to the grilled noodles and was topped with an amazing creamy sauce.
As can be expected, okonomiyaki can be very filling and this was a large serving so it will please anyone with a big appetite. In addition to the Tokugawa-style okonomiyakis, they also have Hiroshima-style okonomiyakis, donburis, curry, and yakisobas.
