okonomiyaki

Okonomiyaki is a savoury Japanese pancake containing a variety of ingredients, “okonomi” meaning “what you like” and yaki meaning “to grill”. A savoury Japanese pancake is a perfect starting base to exhibit other fun flavours, these can appear either inside the pancake itself (like meat) or on top, such as pickled ginger, Japanese mayonnaise and  fish flakes (Katsuobushi). We paired our Okonomiyaki with a light avocado cream. Enjoy!
