The specialty here is okonomiyaki, a cross between an omelet and a savory pancake, topped with fluttering bonito flakes. Try the mochi shiso one, with chewy rice cakes and an herb that’s like a mint and basil hybrid, or pork kimchee okonomiyaki. They can take almost 20 minutes to cook on the teppan grill, but it’s oh-so-worth-it. The open-air setting—one side opens onto bustling Kuhio Street—is like Osaka meets Waikiki.
