In November, William joined me for a first visit to Osaka-style okonomiyaki specialist, Fugetsu. A branch of a Japanese chain, we'd heard the lines can be long here. I guess we lucked out stopping in the day after Thanksgiving when people might not have felt like eating much.

Beef tendon (with velvety meaty bits still attached) in ponzu sauce served hot with mentaiko and negi was my favorite bite. All other proteins were over cooked and on the tough side. That said, we liked the food a lot but would emphasize vege selections next time.

Kinoko soy yakisoba was too salty but delivered such depth of flavor. I adored the chewy noodles.

Spicy shrimp and scallops were most over cooked of all, too bad as the vegetable garnish with spicy mayo tasted fine.

Plump Osaka style okonomiyaki, ordered premium with oysters, needed addition of more sauce at the table plus s shower of powdered seaweed.

Taiyaki oozed with red bean paste, some char tones, and was served sundae style with vanilla and green tea ice cream.

Navigating the various menus, posters and menu boards took some time and help from the wait staff.

Some items are dinner time only.

We'd like to come back for the Monday through Thursday, 8pm to 10pm happy hour specials.

Happy hour features a yaki soba special each day.
