Okonomiyaki is a traditional Japanese pancake made with wheat flour and egg. It's usually topped with the classic combination of katsuobushi, nori, mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce but there are many variations found all over Japan.

You might be familiar with our prawn toast at Shackfuyu, which is sneakily disguised as Okonomiyaki with those flakey katsuobushi bits, but here we’re sticking slightly more to the authentic recipe. We’re also big fans of kimchi pancakes so we’ve decided to combine the two for a proper treat for the mouth.

our kind of pancake

Be warned, this is a beast of an Okonomiyaki. No seriously, you could probably feed your entire family with this bad boy. Just like our ramens, this recipe packs a punch and will get your tastebuds going. Alongside kimchi and cheese we’ve also snuck some smoked bacon into this pancake, because – pretty much – everything is better with bacon and we’re not ones to do things by halves.
