Located inside the Hiroshima Prefecture antenna shop, Sanshou serves Hiroshima's most famous foods, okonomiyaki and oysters, and offers a nice selection of local premium sake and shochu to wash it down. If you've got a good appetite, the Special Sansho Okonomiyaki (Y1660) is the way to go - it's packed with plenty of shrimp and squid, pork, vegetables and ramen noodles, and topped with two juicy fried oysters.

If you sit at the counter you can watch the rather complicated assembly process step by step - it's quite impressive. The finished product is nicely balanced in flavor and texture, from the thin layer of fried egg on top to the lightly charred bits of squid and the partially crunchy noodles.

You can fine-tune the experience with tangy sauce, spicy mayonnaise, red pepper, black pepper and garlic powder that are on the counter, or order toasted garlic chips as an optional topping.

As is typical for an okonomiyaki shop, there's also a selection of other items from the teppan grill - bacon-asparagus stir-fry, pork-kimchee, squid tentacles, moyashi (bean sprouts), steaks and several oyster dishes.
