        that looks sooooo good. Gio's link too. i love okonomiyaki, although i just discovered them last year. going to have to make one - i like having both the more detailed link and the super simple one, because you can combine the two.

            You're welcome DK. I just found the following site that is dedicated to okonomiyaki...! Haven't even read any of the posts yet but it Does look promising. All this talk about these pancakes is making me think it would be a good Friday night meal this week...


            1. re: Gio

              I am going to have to try making this. Can't wait to explore the okonomiyaki site you've uncovered.

            That Is a great resource, phokonomiyaki. Many thanks for supplying the link.

          2. These ingredients seem much like Chinese egg foo yung, with flour added, of course. So I can figure the flavor in my head -- except for the Worcestershire -- !
            Is Japanese tonkatsu much like Worcestershire?

              Tonkatsu Sauce:
              1 tsp. dry mustard powder
              1 cup ketchup
              ΒΌ cup Worcestershire
              4 tsp. soy sauce
              Mix the dry mustard with a little water to make a paste then add the other ingredients.

              There also a topping for okonomiyaki called Okonomi Sauce which is basically the same sauce but w/out the mustard...:
              Mix 3 tbs of ketchup, with 1 tbs of Worcestershire sauce, with 1 tsp of Soy Sauce.

              1. re: blue room

                similar TYPES of ingredients, but totally different texture and flavor to egg foo yung
                we have a bottle of tonkatsu sauce we use for this - it last for years, also a squeezie of japanese mayo, ditto..
