I also love Okonomiyaki. Which book is your recipe from Gio?

    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
      ¼ 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.

        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..

            i love okonomiyaki too! - heres the recipe Ive used before
            there are plenty of simpler recipes (for example leaving out the yam), but this one is easy y once you pull the ingredients together, and interesting

                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.
