Cooking Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki, Japanese restaurant, Kyoto, Japan

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese style omelette containing your choice of vegetables, chicken/squid/pork etc served with soy sauce/Japanese pickles and topped with dried fish shavings - it is very filling. Takoyaki is a ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special moulded pan. It is typically filled with minced or diced octopus (tako), tempura scraps (tenkasu), pickled ginger, and green onion. Takoyaki are brushed with takoyaki sauce (similar to Worcestershire sauce) and mayonnaise, and then sprinkled with green laver (aonori) and shavings of dried bonito.
