Okonomiyaki Chitose

JAPANESE RESTAURANT

"I'm not usually a fan of trusting TripAdvisor when it comes to local food, but I was intrigued by this Okonomiyaki restaurant being number one at the time of my visit. I arrived with a friend about 20 minutes after it opened for lunch and we waited for about half an hour to be seated at the bar right in front of the action."
