Just a 5 minute walk from Namba station, Fukutaro is a very famous okonomiyaki place in southern part of Osaka. Due to its popularity you might have to wait for quite a long time - but let me tell you, it is definitely worth the wait. So don't give up and go home, stay and enjoy what Fukutaro has to offer!
Their recommended menu is Negi-yaki (thinner than okonomiyaki, made with green onion)!
