'Takoyaki' and 'okonomiyaki', Japanese snack-balls made with octopus or squid are not as well known in the West as sushi, but they do have a strong following among Japanese and others in the know. This extremely tiny East Village storefront fries up fresh and tasty Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki for its devoted customers. There is no seating but it's worth the wait as regards its novelty. Payment is by cash only.
