Tsubohachi’s okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes) is some pretty amazing stuff. At a price of $9.80, you’ll get a mouth-watering, savory and delicious pancake topped with thick okonomiyaki sauce, bonito flakes and a variant of toppings. The pancake is so fluffy and soft, and so very chewy. I’ve always came back to Tsubohachi specifically for this pancake. However, it seemed like there was a decrease in serving portion from before. It used to have a larger serving portion and thus a more filling pancake, but with my latest visit (6/20/2014), the serving size seems to have shrunk. It disappointed me a little, as I was looking forward to the pancake of before, but at least taste wise, was still pleasing.
While I’ll freely give my praises for Tsubohachi’s okonomiyaki pancakes/pizzas, I can’t say the same for the ramen noodles/udon they serve there. To be honest, the ramen/udon they served was a little overcooked and soggy, the soup was pretty ordinary but hardly slurp-worthy. The meat was nothing fantastic either. Yet for that taste, the price was $13+, which definitely strikes ramen at Tsubohachi off my list.
However, one plus point for Tsubohachi would be the design. They had Japanese tatami mats for a slightly more authentic Japanese dining, and that really impressed me. It gave off a unique and classy ambience which I like.
I’ll still come back for the okonomiyaki/pizzas but maybe not for the ramen.
