Washington, DC

705 6th Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been in and out of DC for the last 10 years and most recently transplanted from Pittsburgh. The DC food scene has always been relatively quick (before commenters skewer me I said relatively, and I’m comparing to Pittsburgh) to pick up on food trends, so I was surprised to come from Pittsburgh where Okonomiyaki was becoming popular and find it nowhere in DC. At first I thought I’d just give it time, but two and half years later in DC and it still seems absent.

Does anywhere know where I can get the deliciously savory Japanese pancake in the District?”

The Post did an article on this in 2013 and it looks like Daikaya has “Okonomiyaki-style” in Chinatown and Kaz Sushi Bistro has it at 1915 I St, NW. Anyone else know where to get some around town?
