We read about Lopez months before our trip to Japan in "Rice, Noodle, Fish" and immediately planned on searching this place out when visiting Hiroshima. We were not disappointed, the okonomiyaki was definitely the best we have had (we have tried many others but this one still reigns supreme). Remember to add the jalapeños, too! In addition to great food,... More

Simple, nice and cosy location, with the owner cooking his famous okonomiyaki right in front of you. His English is very good and after a short waiting, I had a place around the grill and being my very first okonomiyaki, he suggested me a basic version and kindly explained me more about it. It was so yummy! at the end,... More

Excellent atmosphere, friendly service and great food. It is always busy. The proof is ....where else in Japan could you see a Gaijin owned restaurant packed with Japanese patrons. I am always the only gaijin in the place.

It's always interesting when a "gaijin" owns a restaurant in Japan - even more so when talking about one of HIroshima's claim to culinary fame. Lopez might not be distinguishable from other okonomiyaki places in Hiroshima were it not for the fact that the dishes other than okonomiyaki are likely unique to an okonomiyaki place - items like a chili...

I return to Hiroshima annually. As soon as I arrive to Yokogawa Station, I head straight to Lopez's. I studied abroad in Hiroshima for a year and frequented the restaurant weekly. Now that I'm back in the U.S., it is an annual trip! Go and try it out please. Thank me later. I order with soba noodles. Pork. Green onions.... More

Despite it is not very easy to find the place, Lopez is a great place to taste one of the most traditional dishes in Japan. Surprisingly Mr. López a guatemalan cook who emigrated to Japan for love long ago, has added a twist of latinamerican flavor with jalapeño peppers. He gave us some ingredients of Okonimyaki to try to cook... More

Worth the effort we took to walk out of our way, we were lucky enough that the owner was open later than usual for lunch and stayed open for us to enjoy some authentic Hiroshima style Okonomiaki. Friendly staff, great food! Keep in mind they're only open for lunch on Tuesday and Friday.

Lopez' is a busy and compact shop near Yokogawa Station (one stop on the JR from Hiroshima Station). You can find it on Google Map. The place has a really good feel /vibe. Fernando is running the place and has great English, Japanese and Spanish. He will serve you up in the spirit of okonomiyaki, "what you like".... I had... More

Full fledged hiroshima style, but a different spice mix and more meat. Get it with soba noodles plus jalapenos and cheese...amazing.
