A long-established okonomiyaki restaurant founded in 1951 popular for delicious okonomiyaki made with a unique cooking method that fortifies the texture of the ingredients.
A hidden restaurant that is always ranked high in the fiercely competitive battlefield of the vast okonomiyaki world.
Aside from the amazing taste of the okonomiyaki, the kind and gentle personality of the owner is one of the reasons for Sarashina’s popularity.
The chef uses fresh noodles that are chewy and voluminous and cabbage that is cooked in a unique way that brings out the sweetness while maintaining its texture. The key ingredient that makes Sarashina’s okonomiyaki so special is the umami of tororo kombu (soft flakes of sea kelp) that brings together the batter and ingredients in a flavorful and perfect balance.
The final touch is a light sauce that accentuates the sweetness of the vegetables used in a modest amount. The chef is dedicated to cooking okonomiyaki that does not rely on strong and overpowering sauces and lets the wonderful and gentle flavors shine through using the perfect amount of soup stock.
Locals have been enjoying the nostalgic and comforting taste that has been preserved for generations since 1951. Please come by and have a taste of this classic Hiroshima soul food.
