Its most characteristic feature is the way the cabbage, meat, soba noodles, egg, and other ingredients are piled up in layers, grilled on a hot plate, and wrapped in a thin crepe. The sauce is sweet and has a syrup-like texture. The streets of downtown Hiroshima are lined with okonomiyaki restaurants.
