There is one thing you must be sure to eat when visiting Hiroshima: Okonomiyaki.
Translated literally into English, it means “as you like it, fried.” Or something like that.
You can get a wide variety of types of okonomiyaki, but we stuck to the basic formula. This consists of eggs, cabbage, pork, noodles, and a special sauce.
After trying the famous Hiroshima okonomiyaki, we opted for some non-Japanese cuisine during the rest of our time visiting.
One place we found was called Totide. It was an Italian restaurant and wine bar. It was-in short-some of the best Italian food I have ever had. The service was also fantastic.
We started with an appetizer from our server (an Italian man who has been living in Japan for sometime and also speaks perfect English)-a fried flat bread served with a fresh soft cheese and extra virgin olive oil.
Our pasta dishes were exceptional. The pasta had all been handmade that morning. The lasagna was at least twenty layers of delicious sauce, cheese, and thin beautiful lasagna noodles.

It was heaven.
On our second day, we found a great Indian restaurant. And ate waaaaaaaay too much for comfort. It was incredibly delicious.
