First, you make a thin pancake. On top of that, you add soba or udon noodle, a lot of cabbage, pork and so on. You don't mix all the ingredients.

Flip the okonomiyaki and you fry an egg and add that to the okonomiyaki. The sauce is sweeter than Osaka okonomiyaki and you don't usually add mayonnaise.
