What’s in a name? In this case, a lot. Okonomiyaki is a savory kind of pancake. The word in Japanese means, “What you want.” And we couldn’t agree more. The batter for this fabulous, crispy dish is made with the season’s freshest produce. As a finishing touch, you’ll drizzle two different kinds of homemade sauce over the pancakes and top them with tender, peppery mizuna greens. What more could we ask for?
