How to keep its quality
The major ingredient in okonomiyaki, cabbage is selected from different production areas all over Japan depending on the season. Only these employees who passed the test can grill okonomiyaki. The noodles are fresh and the okonomiyaki mixture must be rested for more than 4 hours. By this strict and uncompromising approach, this place has been able to maintain its delicious flavor.
Popular dish with toppings called Special
This dish called Special （1,270 yen） has big pieces of raw squid and shrimp on it, and it is the most popular one among okonomiyaki menus with toppings. The basic okonomiyaki at Rei-chan comes with pork, egg, a lot of cabbage and noodles flavored with ketchup. In the Special, seafood is added to this basic one and it tastes really good.
Another popular dish, Mozzarella Cheese
This dish, Mozzarella Cheese （1,020 yen） is also popular at Rei-chan because of plenty of mozzarella cheese in the okonomiyaki. Usually Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki has more vegetables and a lighter taste, but the melting cheese adds a rich taste in it.
