I'm a 43 y.o. Japanese man. I love cooking Chinese and Thai food. I make bento almost everyday. Bento is not difficult to make. Just pack leftovers and take it with you for lunch. That's a bento. I make my bento within 15 minutes by using leftovers and frozen food. I don't make chara-ben.

  2. Okonomiyaki is one of the popular dish for foreingners here. At an okonomiyaki restaurant, a clerk brings you the batter for okonomiyaki, and you cook it by yourself. It’s gonna be fun for you!

  3. I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and we actually have a okonomiyaki-restaurant here! I visited, it was nice, you were not supposed to bake your own though, it was ready served to you.

    • Thank you for your comment.^^ Yes, it depends on the restaurant. I think that it will be much more exciting for customers if they cook it by themselves, especially outside of Japan.
