JAPANESE PANCAKE WORLD AMSTERDAM
Okonomiyaki! Even the name just sounds fun and exciting.
Okonomiyaki are pancakes made with egg, flour and mountain potato which can then be piled high with all kinds of toppings or the toppings can be included within the pancake. Japanese Pancake World prepares the pancakes in three different styles:
- Osaka-style: The Osaka style is the most common of the three. Choose from a long list of ingredients to include in the pancake like cheese, seafood, vegetables or marinated beef. Pancake sauce and mayonnaise decorate the top of the pancakes, adding flavor and excitement.
- Hiroshima-style: These pancakes have a crêpe-like batter creating a crispy pancake which is usually topped with multiple layers of ingredients including cabbage, noodles and fried egg.
- Negi-yaki: This pancake style comes from Kobe and incorporates spring onions into the pancake batter.
Grab a table inside the charming Japanese Pancake World or sit at the grill and watch as the pancakes are made to order. Try not to drool.
Along with tasty okonomiyaki, the restaurant serves a few appetizers, drinks and desserts.
The chef owner travels back and forth between Amsterdam and Germany, so the restaurant is sometimes closed for a few weeks when he is out of town. Be sure to check the website for the latest hours, or give them a call at +31 (020) 320 4447.
