Stores where you can eat and drink nearby
As the authentic Kansai-style okonomiyaki can be enjoyed for casual occasions, Koume gains a gathering of families and high school students who commute to school in the neighbourhood. It offers a choice of about twenty kinds of okonomiyaki, ranging from healthy options to heavier options. The top recommendation is a basic okonomiyaki with pork and egg. Also recommended is a classic menu item, which is the deluxe "mix" okonomiyaki with squid, shrimps, and scallops. The menu has a selection of items other than okonomiyaki, such as yakisoba (stir-fried noodles), takoyaki (savory balls with octopus), and monjayaki (crispy grilled runny pancake).
