Mitchan okonomiyaki has always been one of my favorite in Hiroshima city and the new Miyabi branch located on the 10th floor of the Sogo department store brings this Hiroshima speciality to another level.
On my latest trip to Hiroshima, I decided to make the trek to the Yokogawa area and try Pizza Riva. I found Pizza Riva on the Associazione Verace Pizza napoletanawebsite, but one friend who lives in Hiroshima had already told me it was his favorite.
Hiroshima is famous for okonomiyaki and in the town of okonomiyaki, Mitchan is my restaurant of choice. I’ve been to Mitchan at least twice a year for the last 3 years and they have been serving great food every time.
Where can you find a good pint of draught beer in the land of Asahi, Kirin and Sapporo? I finally found a place to quench my thirst in Hiroshima city;Raku Beer is a great little bar where Japanese microbrewery beer can be found on tap.
Before I came to Japan, I had never eaten a okonomiyaki. This all changed on my first visit to Hiroshima city and since then I’ve been trying to find great okonomiyaki places.
Hironoya is one of them and according to my co-workers, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Hironoya is located in Fuchu city, just outside of Fukuyama. Fuchu is not a big place, but there is a small country road that pretty much goes from my village in the mountains all the way to this okonomiyaki shop. The route 417 is one tight scary road barely larger than my miniature Japanese car.
