Okonomiyaki | Japanese Savory Pancake

Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is one of the most popular street food in Japan.

It's pretty easy to make it. And you don't need any expensive ingredients!!

My version has really tasty garlic bits on top. And a little bit of the secret ingredients in he batter. It really brings up the flavour to the next level!
