Okonomiyaki is a pan fried dish, also known as Japanese pancakes. It consists of batter,cabbage, and a variety of toppings such as meat, seafood, cheese, etc. The word "okonomi" means "to one's liking", so there are many styles in eating this dish. Okonomiyaki originated in Hiroshima and Osaka, but Hiroshima Okonomiyaki always includes noodles and eggs while in Osaka, it does not. Depending on where you eat the Okonomiyaki, the style and ingredients may change, but Okonomiyaki restaurants are located all over Japan.
