    looking for Japanese drunk food? this is it. and this is the best. get the combo B: okonominyaki with pork (you want that crispy bacon!) and takoyaki with extra bonito flakes (aka fish bacon)

    "Slather up the takoyaki with kewpie mayo, okonomiyaki sauce, and bonito, and you have pure umami. If only they sold alcohol; then you could wash it down with a beer or sake!" - Chef Tien Ho Mehr erfahren

    Love this grab and go spot! The takoyaki was yummy and made to order. Make sure to ask for extra bonito flakes. Grab a combo for the full experience!

    Probably my favorite place to go for Japanese street food when I want something other than ramen or izakaya. Get your takoyaki (fried octopus croquettes) with lots of sauce and bonito flakes.

    The okonomiyaki is fried vegetables with either shrimp or bacon plus bonito flakes and their sauces. The vegetables were light and crunchy, the shrimp added a bit of chewiness. Sauces are amazing

    Takoyaki balls!!!! Octopus are the best as that's how they're traditionally made, but they also come with squid, beef, pork, cheese and plain. Cash only and no sit down - but still AMAZING!!!

    Amazing takoyaki (octopus balls with bonito [fish] flakes, homemade mayo, seaweed powder and Japanese BBQ sauce!!) - food is takeout and it's a capacity of 3 customers at a time inside!

    The noodles (yakisoba) or the pancake (okonomiyaki) are both too good to miss. Lucky for us you can get a combo! With a side medetai for dessert of course...

    New location does not have the same vibe as the original. Pass on their taiyaki, shells are thin and they are not molded together well. Go for takoyaki (if fresh), the okomomiyaki and yakisoba.

    The takoyaki here is ridiculously good. The dumplings texture is softer than marshmallows and then u get the chewiness of the octopus. The dumplings really brings out the flavor of the octopus.

    I’d never been to the “old spot” referred here by some, so can’t compare. But as for now, it is a good street food spot with decent cheap food and no bathroom, but a sanitizer on the counter.

    A Japanese hole in the wall in the East Village good for a quick snack. Order the Takoyaki. You'll wonder what on earth you're eating and why it's so delicious. (Hint: it's fried octopus dumplings)

    Osaka style street food. Takoyaki, grilled bits of octopus cooked into a ball of batter. Okonomiyaki, Japanese for "What you love, grilled" is a savory Japanese pancake. Unique and delicious!

    Takoyaki are Japanese fried balls of savory pancake-like patter, with octopus in the middle. They’re served piping hot with gooey insides, and covered in a bunch of sauces and bonito flakes

    If you haven’t tried Takoyaki yet, drop everything and go now to enjoy the savory octopus balls served up here. Still hungry, order Okonomiyaki with pork or squid.

    Takoyaki + Okonomiyaki or Yakisoba = 😻 Get it to go and eat it at Cooper Square (There's a nice seating area to the west of the Cooper Union foundation building)

    Enjoy delicious and authentic Japanese street food, made fresh and ready to go. Make sure to try the popular takoyaki octopus balls (six balls for $5) made from boiled and diced octopus.

    Cheap Japanese street food (not exactly FAST food) that's super authentic and unique. Didn't love the yakisoba (like Lo mein) but dug the okonomiyaki
  • Ghassan A.Herz-Symbol auf Nutzerbild
    The red bean medetai are made of a thin layer of bread and a ridiculous amount of filling. The filling wasnt too sweet nor to savoury but perfectly balanced in between. Definitely give it a go.

    Their takoyaki is real delicious along with their okomomyaki but it is a long wait sometimes to get the okomomyaki....

    Bringing the street foods of Japan to NYC, Otafuku is our favorite place to grab a quick bite to eat before AND after grabbing drinks with friends in the East Village!

    If youre in a hurry get takoyaki to go, if you have some time to spare wait for an okonomiyaki w squid and everything on top !!! Also try  ラムネ(ramune) the bubbly

    Takoyaki are Japanese fried balls of savory pancake-like patter, with octopus in the middle (they look a little like Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins).

    Takoyaki ($5) may not sound appetizing, but they're worth trying. Pieces of octopus are enrobed in wheat flour, and covered in mayo, a smoky “barbecue” sauce, dried seaweed and bonito flakes. Mehr erfahren

    Get the takoyaki while it's still piping hot. You can order okonomiyaki and udon as well.

    You haven't gone balls-out until you've had their octopus Takoyaki. B combo with the pancake. You're not listening if you read the same tip from 30 other peeple here and haven't tried it.

    The guys who work here said to get the pork (and never the squid). The yakisoba isn't as filling as the okonomiyaki

    The biggest takoyaki I've ever had. Worth the price. Favorite hole in the wall joint when I need more food after a meal

    Takoyaki is weird in between: a bit too much for a snack, a bit too little for its own meal. Combos way too filling for one though. Delicious any way.

    Sadly Baltimore does not have otafuku so I made a point to come here at least once every trip to NYC . Combo B squid + extra bento flakes for the wins!

    Cute little Takoyaki stand. Sign says fits only 3 people so wait outside! Reminds me of Japan :)

    Their takeout okonomiyaki is the best in the city. No place to sit, though, so plan to hunker down nearby.

    Try to let the takoyaki cool before you put in your mouth, you might burn your mouth, like I did...
