Okonomiyaki and Modern Yaki, Hiroshima Yaki, or Tokyo style Monjya Yaki have made appearances here and there in Hong Kong over the years. Some have disappeared over time and only 1-2 remain in operation, but none before the opening of Japanese import Dohton Bori Okonomiyaki お好み焼 道とん堀 in K11 has been as legit in recipes and taste. This is the only Okonomiyaki shop I recommend in Hong Kong for an authentic taste, bar the occasional better dishes served at KOZY Okonomiyaki.
Dohton Bori Okonomiyaki -
The place name suggests it's Osakan style pancakes, although the shop is from Tokyo side.
Menus - with Japanese Savory Pancakes, and behold, also Western style Dessert Pancakes -
Teppan Griddle - This one is for DIY Cooking, or you can also request for the staff to assist you. Some places offer teppans only for keeping them warm.
Hiroshima Yaki with Noodles - $78
I am surprised this Hiroshima yaki is very authentic in recipe, which is usually only eaten in Hiroshima side and I visit there for them. Even within Japan itself, many Hiroshima yaki pancakes aren't done correctly... Kudos to this shop for getting the basics correct
Hiroshima Yaki Pancake with Pork & Noodles -
The aori seaweed to be sprinkled on top. I prefer larger Bonito Katsuo bushi flakes, but overall I was very happy with this. The sauces, the flour, portion, flavors, even the thick springy noodles were what you expect to find in a better Okonomiyaki shop in Kansai or Hiroshima side.
Beef Tendon Okonomiyaki - $88
For us, especially dining with a fellow Osaka friend, ordering Okonomiyaki without beef tendons is like not eating it properly. However this doesn't come with any meat, so for this pricing point it was too expensive relative to other dishes.
We Added Extra Denmark Pork for $20 - Total $108
So the total pancake price came to $108 for this one, a bit too aggressive.. but you can always order other pancake options which are much more reasonably priced starting from only $68
Voila! 'Gyu Suji' Beef Tendon Okonomiyaki with Pork Belly Slices
Tasting very good, not only by Hong Kong standards, but also by Japanese standards for once!
The queue is long here, and to avoid it try to arrive before 5:30pm on weekdays. On weekends one can forget it for now as I have tried to return back and you would easily wait for 3 hours+ even with the Ticket in hand..
