Monjayaki @ Tsukishima, Tokyo

Monjayaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients. The ingredients are finely chopped and mixed into the batter before frying. It has a consistency comparable to a pool of melted cheese when cooked. It is then eaten directly off the grill using a small metal spatula. I went to Tsukishima, Tokyo to taste this delicious delicacy.

Taste:8/10(Delicious. Monjayaki is taste good and I ordered the most traditional version. Vegetable fried pan cake Japanese style is new to me but its good).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. The monjayaki cost 900 Yen which is about MYR36. If include drink, be prepared to spend around MYR48 or 1200 Yen).

Batter poured.

Looks good. But make sure you are prepared with oily smell on your shirt. They even have cupboard underneath the chair to keep your belongings so that it don't catch the oily smell.

Manjayaki is almost ready.

Sticky and yummy.

The fried parts below are the best ones as mentioned by the chef. Its good though.
