We had walked from Hiroshima Station to the Peace Park and back, and by the time we reached Fukuchan we were absolutely ravenous. We had been looking for somewhere to stop for okonomiyaki on the way back from the park, but typically everywhere we had walked past had done some other type of food (we could have katsu in about 6 restaurants if we wanted!). Fukuchan specialises in okonomiyaki, including the oyster type that is popular in Hiroshima. We picked the flavours we wanted (the husband had beef or pork, and I had octopus) and waited for our food. The kitchen is open so we could watch the chefs making our lunch, which was pretty interesting. When it arrived it was all devoured pretty quickly because we had spent so long walking around town. Okonomiyaki is quite a solid dish, and we certainly felt full once we had finished. If you are at Hiroshima station, or looking for food in the area, then Fukuchan is definitely worth a look.
After reading about this regional dish, we knew we wanted to try it. The hardest part was finding this place at the train station. The train station is large & the layout can be confusing - we found a hamburger place in our travels but wanted to try the okonomiyaki. I wish I remembered the restaurant & names of the very kind young ladies who worked there - they were so kind that one actually left their restaurant to personally walk us to Fukuchan & help us find it! The noodles were good - I knew what I wanted but must have got confused by the menu. I didn't get quite what I had in mind, but it was still good. The menu is very large - I should have just pointed out the dish being served to most of the customers to the person taking my order. The portion size is so huge - there is no way I could eat even half of it. Friendly service too.
