On a single street in Tsukishima (a manmade island in the city), there are approximately 50 restaurants serving monja, a kind of pancake (some say omlette) made from a batter poured atop meat or seafood, onions, and cabbage, cooked on a teppan griddle. Monja Hazama, distinguished from the others by a red awning, paper latnerns, and a jumble of signs marking the entrance, is considered to be the best. Diners watch from counter seating as chefs use metal spatulas to shape the mixture into a gooey, savory mass that's a kind of Japanese comfort food. 

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

This new spot has become a favored weekend hangout, mainly for its vast alfresco setting and retractable roof, its delicious bar food (venison sausage, Wiener schnitzel) and its fabulous people-watching.

We loved: The wagyu burger.
