Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き?) is a Japanese food dish of a pan-fried batter cake and different ingredients including meat, seafood, and vegetables. Most okonomiyaki has cabbage in it.

The name of this dish means "cook what you like".[1] Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with Kansai or Hiroshima, but is widely available throughout the country.

Okonomiyaki is the popular food in Japan. In postwar Hiroshima, okonomiyaki was invented to save a few wheat flour and vegetables (for example, cabbage, bean sprout, green onion and so on.) because foods are shortage. It is called "okonomiyaki (fried liking foods)" because people made okonomiyaki to include their favorite foods in the past.
