Where To Find Okonomiyaki In Miami

Let us lead you to the glorious Japanese dish known as okonomiyaki.

Okonomiyaki is hard to find in Miami—but not impossible. This savory Japanese pancake typically made with cabbage, seafood, slices of pork, flour, and eggs is not only delicious but also helps you hit your recommended fiber intake for the day. Thanks, cabbage. And thanks to these three spots, who are all serving versions of okonomiyaki we thoroughly enjoy.

We love everything on QP’s menu, but their okonomiyaki is a big reason why this place is worth crossing town for (even if traffic really sucks). The savory pancake is filled up like a clown car with tons of sour cabbage, eggs, and your choice of mushroom escabeche or chorizo (or, if you really want to go wild, both). Cut it up like a pie and it’s perfect to share with a couple friends or a hungry date. Just know that the best bites are the crispy, caramelized edges. Share this information with your hungry date—or don’t, and have it all to yourself.

Yakko Bistro is the kind of casual, delicious Japanese restaurant you probably thought Miami didn’t have since Yakko San (the team’s old restaurant) closed. But that team is back together at Yakko Bistro with a menu that reads like our own personal list of Japanese dishes we’ve been trying to manifest more of in this city. It thankfully includes a lovely okonomiyaki. There are three filling options: assorted vegetables, shrimp, and pork belly. It’s saucey, crunchy, creamy, and a perfect starter before filling the table up with various skewers or their huge omurice.

Unlike other okonomiyaki in the city, Su-Shin's is less pancake-y and more cabbage-y. And that’s fine because okonomiyaki roughly translates to “grilled as you like it,” so there’s no rule that says it needs to be heavy on the batter. This one comes with thin slices of savory pork, mussels, and pickled ginger. Then it’s topped with Kewpie, tangy sauce, and smokey bonito flakes that curl over the steam rising from the crunchy cabbage. It’s a big portion that’s served with a spatula and takes up an entire plate, so wear your stretchy pants on this leg of your short Miami okonomiyaki tour.
