Best Okonomiyaki in Tokyo. The staff is used to having tourists who never ate that dish before, so they show you every step to make your own Okonomiyaki , which is like a savoury pancake. Average price is about 900 yen per dish.

We had already enjoyed excellent Okonomiyaki during our stay in Tokyo, and were looking forward to trying this restaurant based on the reviews. Unfortunately it didn't live up to the hype. Our teppanyaki wasn't turned up properly and staff were inattentive. There was no sizzle...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

Hi, they’re made with egg but I cannot tell if there is eggless option. I’d say no, to be honest (looking at the menu) but maybe there are some hidden options.
