One of the biggest differences is the way you cook.
If you have ever been to Okonomiyaki restaurant in Osaka, you might have experienced cooking Okonomiyaki on a hot plate and mixing all the ingredients before cooking. For Hiroshimayaki, Hiroshima's Okonomiyaki, you don't mix ingredients! Instead they make layers and put ingredients on top of each ingredients. Also the batter is quite different too- they put thin layer of batter that looks like a crepe on top of cabbage and noodles!
In terms of sauce, Osaka's Okonomiyaki is slightly spicy, but sauce used in Hiroshima's Okonomiyaki is sweet.

Now let's find where you can try Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki in Hiroshima!

Beloved by locals, this is probably the most widely recognized Okonomiyaki restaurant in Hiroshima. Their simple yet savory taste that is created from the combination of sweet cabbage, crispy Chinese noodles with their original sauce called "Micchan sauce"...it's beyond amazing.
