To celebrate the opening of a new Taco Ball in Osaka’s Umeda, the fast-food chain decided to turn the city’s soul food into a burrito.


Okonomiyaki is one of Osaka’s signature dishes. Made with cabbage, flour, egg, strips of pork and crunchy tempura bits, okonomiyaki means “however you like,” so people add all sorts of other stuff like cheese, mochi and kimchi. It’s then cooked like a pancake and slathered with savory sauce. It’s a truly delicious dish!


According to Taco Ball (via SoraNews), the okonomiyaki burrito is old sold at the Umeda and Dotonbori branches.

The okonomiyaki burrito appears to be stuffed with sliced cabbage, red peppers, meat and cheese and covered with a savory sauce. Taco Bell says this is okonomiyaki that can be eaten with one hand.


Apparently, it’s tasty, too!

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Oh man, I missed it by a 1 year. I tried out a Taco Bell in Osaka last year. It wasn’t bad, the food was maybe SLIGHTLY better in that it was put together with a bit more care than most Taco Bells in the US are. What really put it over the top was that nice, clean and attractive dining area. With its attractive wooden tables and floors, it looked like a place you’d actually like to eat. On top of that, they served draft beer and sangria.
