Named after Hiroshima's baseball team, this casual, brightly lit all-day shop serves Hiroshima's most famous dish, okonomiyaki. You can choose from "soba" or udon noodles, with a few optional toppings like garlic cloves, squid and shrimp, displayed on hand-written tags on the wall.

The okonomiyaki here is well constructed, with distinct layers of egg (a bit thicker than average), noodles, bacon and other fillings, then a good volume of cabbage on top of a sturdy, chewy base. Budget around Y1000-1500 for food.
