Hagarita -  the love of cooking and sharing food

okonomiyaki, a very special "pancake"

While in Hiroshima we had to try the local specialty, Okonomiyaki. It starts as a crepe with a mountain of veggies and some meat on top, the vegetable slowly shrinks and then it's flipped and placed on a bed of noodles, then an egg and to finish it up, the special home-made sauce. Even better than the end result was sitting down to watch the long process of preparing this delicious food.

the udon factory

We are so hungry, driving through Fukuoka looking for a place to eat when we notice a spot that looks like it's popping, the parking lot is full, there is a line inside, this gotta be worth it.
An Udon factory, from start to finish, where they make the dough, cut the noodles, boil and portion, then you choose your size (Large please!!), get your perfectly soft-boiled egg and pick your deep-fried toppings from the buffet-like display.
Delicious, perfected udon, like no noodle I tasted before
