Okonomiyaki is one of Japan’s many comfort foods. Often called a “Japanese savory pancake”, this Osaka-specialty cuisine is a mixture of flour, eggs, shredded cabbage, pickled ginger, and whatever other ingredients you want to put into it, cooked over a teppan grill, then topped with a special sauce, some mayonnaise, some bonito flakes, and, finally, some green seaweed flakes.
Okonomiyaki is one of Osaka’s pride and joys, so it’s no surprise that when a new Taco Bell restaurant opened in Osaka’s famous Umeda neighborhood at the end of January, the company celebrated by offering a special Okonomiyaki-flavored Burrito.
This delightful Japan-original concoction, which appears to be a tortilla stuffed with meat, cheese, and sliced peppers topped with okonomiyaki sauce, is labeled as a “handheld okonomiyaki”. You’ll want to try this unique fusion combo to see just how well these two flavors go together!
The Okonomiyaki Burrito sells for 380 yen by itself, or for 700 yen in a set, which includes a drink with chips and dip or Mexican-flavored french fries. As an Osaka specialty, it is only available in the two Taco Bell shops in the Kansai region: the newly opened Umeda branch, on the first floor of Umeda Station’s Hankyu Sanban Gai Festive Court; and the Dotonbori shop, near Namba Station. So if you want to try it, you’ll have to make it a stop on your next trip to Osaka!
