Cuisine in Hiroshima
Okonomi Yaki (Japanese savoury pancake)
Okonomiyaki is the most traditional dish in Hiroshima, and Hiroshima prefecture ranks number one in the number of okonomiyaki restaurants per habitat when compared with other Japanese prefectures.
Okonomiyaki is cooked with cabbage, bean sprouts, pork, egg, and noodles (soba or udon) superpositioned on a thin flour dough spread similar to a crepe. This cooking method and its thick sweet sauce are different from Osaka-style okonomiyaki, which is cooked by mixing the flour dough with other ingredients. The history of okonomiyaki seems to be more than 70 years old, and it was considered a cheap snack. After World War II, a lot of okonomiyaki street stalls survived the devastating effects of the Atomic Bomb, and okonomiyaki helped the people in Hiroshima during the time of food shortage.
Oysters produced in Hiroshima are big, thick, and tasty, and Hiroshima is the number one oyster-producer in Japan. "Kakinodotenabe" (oyster bank pot) is a local dish in Hiroshima, and its residents enjoy cooking fried oysters and oysters on rice, especially during the winter months. Moreover, in Miyajima Island, there are some oyster stores that serve grilled, as well as vinegared, fresh oysters to visitors.
If you visit Hiroshima without taking the time to attentively sample the local sakes, then you're missing out.
