Japanese Pancake World  

The sound of a sizzling Japanese Pancake with its accompanying aroma of unique sauces is enough to tempt any Japanese palate. In some parts of Japan, Japanese Pancakes appear on the dining table on a weekly basis and can be served as lunch or dinner. Japanese Pancakes, or Okonomiyaki, are savoury pancakes with a variety of fresh toppings ranging from sweet corn, beef strips to king prawn. The word Okonomiyaki means 'cook as you like' which also explains the accommodating nature of these pancakes: just choose your favourite toppings and indulge yourself in your personalised pancake, Japanese-style.

"The only place in Europe for okonomiyaki"
The place is near the center of Amsterdam. You will be able to try different style of okonomiyaki. Good quality/price. Better to reserv a table.
