Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki Stalls at Nihonmachi Street Fest [San Francisco]

I stopped by the Nihonmachi Street Fair today (it continues tomorrow) not expecting to find anything exciting food-wise. I was pleasantly surprised to find, side-by-side, Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki specialists from L.A. in the Webster Street food court. I couldn't get past the takoyaki booth, TakoNoTa from Lomita without sampling their excellent takoyaki, made the old-fashioned way, 8 pieces of hot-from-the-takoyaki-form (whatever they call it), each with a nice healthy-sized chunk of octopus, for $5. They had several varieties (jalapeno, wasabi, etc.) but I went to for the "original" (traditional) style.

Right beside it was Okonomiyaki vendor Gaja Okonomiyaki from Lomita, one of the few okonomiyaki specialists anywhere. They had several sytles of okonomiyaki. I didn't indulge, as I hadn't really planned on eating at that time, and God knows how filling those things can be. I may return tomorrow with an appetite.
