    No okonomiyaki went untasted, but the key to getting the best okonomiyaki at Natori may be to order only one. At Natori, cabbage seems to be a scarce commodity; each okonomiyaki that came out of the kitchen had less and less cabbage and more and more batter, onion and carrots. The seafood, vegetable and chicken options were all perfectly pan fried and seasoned. The “modern” was a veg okonomiyaki served on a bed of yakisoba that was so delicious that you’ll want to order a plate of these noodles. If gooey pungency appeals, try the okra and natto. The scrambled egg in the pork and egg made the batter too thick for the cabbage and onion to mellow and crisp. Natori cooks each okonomiyaki to order and serves it on a hot cast iron pan with a special spatula designed to cut through tangles of cabbage. Thanks to Dennis for suggesting an okonomiyaki tasting after hearing about this pancake on public radio. Thanks to Mumon, the avid home cook, for sharing his knowledge of Japanese food.

    An unforgettable experience - a meal of multiple courses of savory pancakes! While I wouldn't repeat the meal in total, sampling other okonomiyaki now and then would be tasty.

    So? Which ones did you all try, and which ones were the best? :)

    An interesting adventure! My first time to taste Okonomiyaki and first time to have pancake for dinner. Glad I didn't miss it.

    I am traveling for work today and I'm not confident I'll be able to make it back on time and rather not hold a spot and be a no show.

    Unfortunately, I am probably going to have to work late on Thursday - and with so many people on the wait list, I figured it was better to give up the spot now so someone else can enjoy. Hope to make it to one of these awesome sounding meals soon.

    Those of us on the waitlist who don't get in would appreciate a report on which are the best variations. :)
