There we found a place called Kureo-ru that specializes in this Japanese dish that's like a pizza and like a pancake.
Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) means "grilled things you like." (Or something like that.) Anyway, the Osakan version of this meal mixes cabbage with flour and eggs and whatever else you make like - usually octopus or shrimp or squid, etc. - and topped with dried bonito flakes and a salty/sweet sauce. We ordered our okonomiyaki with shrimp and egg. There are restaurants where you cook your own okonomiyaki at your table, but Kureo-ru had a grill just for keeping the dish warm. That was fine with us; we were afraid of cooking our own.
It was delicious, and we were pleased with our decision to travel 250 miles to experience a local specialty of Osaka. After we ate, we walked around the shopping arcade, sang karaoke for an hour, then took the bullet train back to Tokyo. Only in Japan!
