OKIWAY is a japanese izakaya serving small plates, okonomiyaki, takoyaki and eclectic beer + sake in Bushwick.
WHAT IS OKONOMIYAKI?
Pronounced OH-KOH-NO-ME-YAK-I, okonomiyaki is a
savory grilled pancake that translates literally to “grilled as you like it”.
Though the earliest records of Japanese pancakes date back to the 17th century,
okonomiyaki is attributed to the World War 2 era, where this creative and
inventive dish sprung from a rice shortage.
Today there are many variations of Okonomiyaki, but we focus on the Osaka (our traditional)
and Hiroshima (includes yaki-soba noodles) styles.
We want you to enjoy your okonomiyaki ‘as you like it’
(with lots of kewpie mayonnaise and a wasabi ale)
we are open from Tuesday-Sunday, from 6pm-Midnight
