Finding proper okonomiyaki is not easy in Hong Kong. I only know of one spot that makes decent okonomiyaki. It’s called Kozy and it’s delicious. It’s definitely not as good as the real deal in Japan, but it hits the spot. If you’re unfamiliar with okonomiyaki, it’s essentially a Japanese savory pancake consisting of a wheat flour based batter mixed with an infinite combination of ingredients including pork, beef, chicken, seafood, veggies, cheese, eggs and more cooked on a flat-top griddle. Japanese mayonnaise and a Worcestershire-esque sauce (takoyaki sauce) is generously drizzled onto the pancake along with Japanese seaweed seasoning (aonori) and dried bonito shavings (katsuobushi).
Located in Causeway Bay, Kozy is always bumpin’ open from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. There are only a handful of tables along with bar seating positioned around the teppanyaki grill so copping a table can be tricky. If you’re with a small party, ask for a table by the grill so you can see all the action. They also serve your foot on the edge of the grill to keep your food warm. They do take reservations, so call in advance if you’re craving these savory pancakes. The menu consists of all teppanyaki and okonomiyaki everything including grilled meats and seafood along with a variety of savory pancakes and omelets. Make sure you order a little bit from each section, but you have to try the okonomiyaki.
Grilled A4 Wagyu beef! This was one of my favs. The beef was tender and flavorful topped with a ton of crispy fried garlic served on a slice of toast. Don’t eat the toast yet though. When you’re done eating the beef, the server will take the toast and add cheese, kewpie mayo and sauce to it.
