We aren’t rookies when it comes to fusing two cultures together to create a new delicious combination, but this one really gave us a double take! A Taco Bell restaurant in Osaka now offers a special Okonomiyaki Burrito!
Osaka is famous for their okonomiyaki, a Japanese comfort food that is a mixture of flour, egg, pickled ginger, cabbage, and some sort of meat or seafood. It is basically a Japanese savory pancake paired with a mouthwatering sauce! It is also typically topped off with mayo, bonito flakes, and seaweed flakes. So how does this translate into a burrito you ask? Leave it to Taco Bell.
This famous Mexican food inspired fast food chain seemed to have created a concoction of meat, peppers, cheese, shredded cabbage and okonomiyaki sauce beautifully wrapped in a tortilla. Honestly, doesn’t sound half bad!
The Okonomiyaki Burrito costs 380 yen on its own or 700 yen for a set that includes a drink with chips and dip or the option of Mexican flavored french fries!
