This is better than it looks.

I always use the sentence above.

Monja-yaki is a local special dish in lower Tokyo area.


1.What is Monjya-yaki?

Monjayaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter, popular in the Kant0 region, similar to okonomi-yaki, but that uses different liquid ingredients.

2.Ingredients of Monjya-yaki

The ingredients in Monja-yaki are finely chopped and mixed into the batter before frying.

Monjayaki batter has ingredients similar to okonomi-yaki. However, additional dashi or water is added to the monja-yaki batter mixture, making it runnier than okonomi-yaki.

The consistency of cooked Monjayaki is comparable to melted cheese.

3.How to cook the Monjya-yaki?

Diners eat directly from the grill using a small spatula.

Monja-yaki diners also participate in the cooking by spreading raw monja on the grill so that crispy bits form and caramelize.

Many monja-yaki restaurants can be found in the Tsukishima district of Tokyo where the dish is said to have originated.

Most of these restaurants also serve regular okonomi-yaki.

4.Okonomi-yaki

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients.

The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning “how you like” or “what you like”, and yaki meaning “grill”.

Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with the Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan, but is widely available throughout the country.

Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region.

Tokyo okonom-iyaki is usually smaller than a Hiroshima or Kansai okonomi-yaki.
