​​What Is Okonomiyaki?

Okonomiyaki is a delicious Japanese street food that’s loved throughout the country. Like a cross between a crepe and an omelet, this savory Japanese pancake is first fried on a flat teppan griddle to a perfect level of crispiness. It’s then loaded with various toppings including Japanese mayonnaise, aonori (dried green powdered seaweed,) pickled ginger, katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes), and okonomiyaki sauce. This sauce uses vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, and shiitakes, and tastes like a thickened Worcestershire sauce.

What Is Takoyaki?

You can use okonomiyaki batter to make takoyaki,and you can dress them with okonomi sauce! But what is takoyaki? Takoyaki is a snack that fries supple pieces of octopus, tempura morsels, pickled ginger, and green onion. It’s served with Japanese mayonnaise, okonomi sauce, bonito flakes, and flakes of seaweed. They are typically cooked in a particular takoyaki grill, allowing the takoyaki batter to be poured and served in its widely recognized ball shape. Other versions range from plain batter to mushrooms or shrimp inclusions.
