Recipe: Okonomiyaki aka Japanese Pizza 🇯🇵

  This is Japan on a plate for me.  Creamy Kewpie mayo, fishy bonito flakes and okonomiyaki sauce – full of umami flavours. Okonomiyaki means ‘grilled as you like it’, and is made from seasoned flour, cabbage, and whatever you have in the fridge.  An easy and quick meal toRead More…
