First let me apologise @dosirakbento. I accidentally deleted your comment on Bento of last week. I left reply on the article, please check, thank you.
Today’s recipe is Tonpei-yaki. This is Japanese omelette which has fried cabbage and pork inside, and is served with okonomiyaki sauce on the top. It depends on persons, but usually people put some topping as we do for okonomiyaki. This is very light meal and a popular food which is sold in a market. It is good when you are a bit hungry but do not want very big meal. Especially, in the late night, I often make it without pork, so that it will not be heavy.
Tonpei-yaki is also good for bento food. My husband really likes tonpei-yaki. If you like okonomiyaki I am sure you will like it too! Please try!!
