Chiso Sottaku Ito 馳走 啐啄一十

'Chiso Sottaku Ito' is one of the best restaurants in Hiroshima. Period. The chef is an absolute master of dashi (broth), which is made at the restaurant using the famous fresh soft water from Hiroshima to draw out the flavor of specialty konbu and 'kezuri bushi' (dried fish, shown above). The dashi is masterfully incorporated into the seafood-based cooking to create absolute masterpieces of flavor.

Hassei 八誠

When you travel to Hiroshima, a must-try food is the local specialty that is okonomiyaki. Although okonomiyaki restaurants are found everywhere in Japan, Hiroshima has its own local style that uses noodles and layers the ingredients.
