Opening in 1945, just after the end of World War II, Mizuno is the oldest Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake) restaurant in Osaka. Ingredients delivered from Kuromon Market make up the wide variety of their Okonomiyaki toppings. Among its dishes, you cannot miss their Yamaimo-yaki (Yam Okonomiyaki), which has been its most popular dish for a very long time. The dough of Okonomiyaki is normally made up of flour and eggs, but Mizuno’s Yamaimo-yaki uses yam instead of flour, making the texture of the dough very soft. The natural sweetness of yam goes well with thick pork and vegetables on the pancakes, creating the unique flavor of Mizuno’s Okonomiyaki.
