Just reminiscing about it can reproduce the taste of this okonomiyaki! “Nagataya”, the place recommended by local people.

This is a famous okonomiyaki canteen located near the Atomic Bomb dome and Peace Memorial Park. Their Hiroshima style okonomiyaki is popular enough that people are willing to wait in long lines. It opened 7 years ago and is already famous. The ingredients and sauce is carefully chosen. With its English menu, many foreign people visit too.

The okonomiyaki restaurant recommended by local people!

After touring Hiroshima Castle, we got very hungry. We had asked the lady at the bicycle rental store, where the best okonomiyaki is. She told us“Nagataya”, located near the atomic bomb dome. The shop is about a 3-minute walk from it. The retro interior is so cute. We went there when they opened, so we didn’t have to wait, but there is usually a long line with a 1 hour wait.

Original Otafuku sauce by Nagataya.

The owner Mr.Nagata, makes the tastiest okonomiyaki ever!

Hiroshima okonomiyaki tastes different from Osaka okanomiyaki. The dough is spread thinly and cooked with tons of cabbage and pork fillets. Then, the dough is put on the grilled soba. Lastly, the sauce is poured on it. Hiroshima style okonomiyaki is“layered”like this.

They use carefully chosen ingredients. The original sauce coincided with the famous Otafuku sauce in Hiroshima, is worth the try! Other than that, homemade noodles are stirred in with original pork soup and they use carefully selected cabbage, spring onions and eggs. I can’t wait to eat them!
We filmed the mouth-watering footage of making okonomiyaki!


My recommendation is “Hiroshima Oyster Okonomiyaki”!

The hot okonomiyaki was delivered to the table! The one with spring onions is “Hiroshima Oyster Okonomiyaki”, and the other is “Deluxe”, with pork, cheese, and rice cake.
I’m so hungry! -Itadakimasu!
This special sauce goes so well with it! It’s slightly sweet and very appetizing. The soba is chewy enough to satisfy your stomach. The taste of oysters is just like heaven. It goes well with beer too!

An English menu and vegetarian menu are also available!

According to the owner Mr. Nagata, many foreign people visit, because it is near the atomic bomb dome and peace memorial park. There’s an English menu and vegetarian menu available. You can tell what it’s like with pictures on the menu.

The people sitting next to us were from China. They looked so happy while eating okonomiyaki and I thought to myself, okonomiyaki could make everyone happy! I was glad that I came here thanks to the lady from the bicycle rental shop!
