On Friday, JaLS students and staff members had a takoyaki and okonomiyaki party! Takoyaki is a famous snack from Osaka, and is a ball of wheat-flour batter usually filled with octopus (tako), tempura scraps, red pickled ginger and a bit of spring onion. They are made in a special pan, as you can see below.
Okonomiyaki was also popularized in Osaka, but has a Hiroshima version as well. Made from a mix of cabbage, batter, whatever toppings you like and topped off with the delicious okonomi sauce, ‘okonomiyaki’ literally means ‘grill what you want/like’. Some might know it as the Japanese version of a pizza ^^
After preparing everything, we started cooking. There was lots of food, and in the end everyone was satisfied and thoroughly stuffed.
Come to Hokkaido JaLS and join us next time!
