Yasube, Okonomiyaki, Pontocho

Yasube is a family-run restaurant in Pontocho serving Okonomiyaki. There are many variations of Okonomiyaki on the menu with the option of different ingredients that you can choose to add to your Okonomiyaki. I would say that the prices are very reasonable, one of the cheaper places to eat in Pontocho. The son speaks good English, and there are English menus available.

We had the yaki-udon with pork and kimchi (¥ 950), and pork and seafood combo with egg okonomiyaki (¥ 950). It was served on the hot plate that was on the table. I liked that we were given the freedom to put the sauce and toppings on the okonomiyaki ourselves. I have had okonomiyaki before, and sometimes the amount of sauce was too much for me. This would be the best one of all the okonomiyaki I have had both in Kyoto and Osaka. I think the minced pork made a big difference. Previous okonomiyakis I had, added pork slices instead of minced pork. The minced pork made the okonomiyaki less dry and gave it a savory sweetness.
