    At the end of 2018 I spent a week in Tokyo at our office over there and then a weekend traveling by Shinkansen (high speed train) to Osaka, Nagoya, and Hiroshima. In Hiroshima my colleague, his son (who was living over there at the time) and I went to a popular Hiroshima okanomiyaki place. We shared 4 giant okanomiyakis and more than a few beers.

    My wife bought a cabbage by mistake and I thought I'd look for a recipe. As the Hiroshima variant starts with sort of a crepe like pancake and also includes a lot of noodles, I was skeptical at finding a gluten free version (for her). But the "regular" recipe is simpler and easier to make. I did it twice in the last week. The second time I added some sliced up pork chop but crumbled bacon would probably be good. Maybe even shrimp!

    It's really easy to make. The only things we didn't have were:
    - Shiracha - I used Tabasco
    - Mirin (kind of a sweeter sake) - didn't sub anything
    - honey - I used agave

    I also shredded some carrot the second time around. You can experiment with whatever you like.

    My wife had a Japanese room mate in college that taught her how to make okanomiyaki. She has celiac’s disease and has been eating gluten free for a long time. Your recipe sounds similar and tasty!

    You should try making it with nagaimo some time. It’s a type of long yam you can get at Asian markets. The texture and taste is the best.

    I must eat GF too (celiac, too) so finding workable recipe hacks.
    Finding good alts for yakisoba noodles - still on the hunt.
    Recently found (well, Mrs Deeve gets the credit) non-wheat ramen bricks, @ Costco.
    Yay.
    Peace - Deeve
