Tried Okonomiyaki at three different places in Hiroshima and Lopez was by far the favourite. Great atmosphere and extremely friendly staff.

Terrific okonomiyaki, great flavors. Can add jalapeños, cheese, and other non Japanese ingredients. Chips and salsa are available along with tequila and mezcal. Mr. Lopez was happy to engage in conversation and made the visit fantastic.

We made the pilgrimage to Okonomiyaki Lopez after reading about the eponymous chef in Matt Goulding's book, "Rice, Noodle, Fish". For those who are interested, the chapter on Okonomiyaki Lopez and, more broadly, the origins of Hiroshima's beloved local dish is available for free as...More

We made our pilgrimage from Tokyo for this (soon to be very) famous Okonomiyake restaurant. Mr. Lopez makes one of the best, and certainly the most special, jalapeño okonomiyake, in the traditional style. I saw many locals come in and order the famous "pancake" saying...More
