Izakaya Hopping in Fukuyama!

This time, we went to a place called Fukuyama in Hiroshima!

I was happy to see the famous restaurants where locals gather and the snacks that can only be found in Fukuyama 😌✨.

Specialty is oden

Standard Daikon radish, konnyaku, thick fried tofu and all your favorites!

Beer (480 yen)

Daikon radish (150 yen) and cabbage rolls (300 yen)

The light soup stock goes well with the sweet and spicy miso sauce 🤤The meat of the cabbage roll was not broken down and was elastic and great 💓.

Kimoteki (580 yen)

I ordered this kimochi because my neighbor ordered it. It seems to be pork liver with ketchup sauce 🐷This dish does not have the peculiar smell of liver at all and makes you want to eat rice 🍚.

Since I came to Hiroshima, I wanted to go home with a taste of okonomiyaki, so I went to this restaurant, which is open from noon.

The restaurant has only two tables and counter seating, and is run by a married couple, giving it an at-home feel.

The great thing about this place is that you can enjoy not only Hiroshima-yaki but also Osaka-yaki, Kobe-yaki, and three types of okonomiyaki! ✨
There were many varieties, but I knew I had to go with the simple nikutama ☺️ The seats are equipped with an iron plate, so you can eat them warm to the end 😋.


The table seated four people!


Kaku highball (490 yen)

Nikutama with buckwheat noodles (790 yen)

The noodles were sticky and the cabbage was crispy and chewy 😚 and the meat was big 👍.
