A typical food of Hiroshima is Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki (Japanese-style pizza). The dedicated sauce is "Okonomi Sauce".
This sauce, made with several types of vegetable and fruit ingredients such as tomatoes, onions, apples and dates, and with spices, is thick, featuring a very rich and sweet taste.
In addition to ordinary okonomi sauce, there are several other types such as hot spicy flavored sauce and yakisoba sauce. Some Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki restaurants even produce their own original sauces and sell them to customers.
With its unique sweet flavor, okonomi sauce is often used not only for Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki but also deep-fried food.
