ULU

Pork Okonomiyaki

Kansai Soul Food in a 100-year old renovated house
DESCRIPTION:

With over 15 years of experience in making okonomiyaki, the owner renovated a century-old traditional house, into the stylish space that uLu is today. The restaurant is a subtle blend of modern and traditional styles with a delicious menu to boot. The owner told us that the secret to the crispy exterior and fluffy interior of his okonomiyaki lies in the way he chops the cabbage and leaves it untouched.

 

MENU DETAILS:

A fabulous selection of okonomiyaki and yakisoba dishes. If you can't make up your mind, go for the "mix" option.
