We used to have a wonderful restaurant in Overland Park called One Bite that introduced us to the Okonomi-Yaki, a Japanese savory pancake/omelet dish that we love. One Bite has a few variations, including the Cheese Bomb Yaki that was super tasty! Unfortunately, One Bite is closing it’s doors! They promised to return in 2012 in the form of a new restaurant in Kansas City’s Westport area (One Bite Sama Zama?!?), but in the mean time I decided had to try to recreate a yaki of my very own. This dish was based off of JustHungry‘s Okonomiyaki, Osaka style. When I began, I was planning on following the recipe, but by the time I was done gathering ingredients, I had Americanized it, or rather Mullieized it. I decided that it probably isn’t a traditional Okonomiyaki, so this is my Yoko-Ono-Yaki, because Yoko Ono is sorta Asian like this dish.
