Description

Village Voice's Description

Think it might be a nightclub owned by Joey Buttafuoco? Nope -- it's an Osaka-style street-food stand where the specialty is a gooey pancake called otafuku, which means "cook what you like." While the range of offerings doesn't match that of a similar establishment at the Japanese mall in Edgewater, New Jersey, Otafuku provides a fine intro to the genre, featuring ingredients such as shrimp, unsmoked bacon, and squid. Also offered: fried octopus balls (who knew they had balls?).

Tips from foursquare

  • naveen on 12/07/08

    takoyaki (octopus balls) and okonomiyaki (pancakey thing) at otafuku. sit outside on the small bench

  • Tim V. on 03/17/10

    Ignore the people who say to skip the bonito flakes; they are Philistines.

  • Tim V. on 12/07/09

    Get Combo B (octopus balls & pancake), all dressed, with a cold barley tea. For $10 you will be stuffed with exotic flavor. Best eating value in E Village.

  • New York Habitat on 11/02/11

    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)

  • Viv on 09/09/13

    Get combo B: okonomiyaki + 6 tokoyaki. V good
