Mangetsu (Full Moon) was a restaurant in Tokyo, Japan that my parents liked to frequent when they took the train from Yokosuka for a day trip. This is from their recollections.
- 1⁄2 cup chopped cabbage
- 4 oysters, out of shell
- 1 tablespoon chopped onion
- 1 egg
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- Mix all ingredients together, then turn onto the greased grill in one heap.
- Flatten it a little. Fry like an omelet or a pancake, turning several times to brown well on both sides.
- Serve with sprinkled with Japanese dark red pepper, soy and worchestershire sauces.
- Cut in half to serve.
Celticevergreen, What you have here is a recipe for okonomyaki, which for some reason folks call "japanese pizza". In the Kansai (southern) area of Japan, this is served with a slightly sweet mayo and okonomyaki sauce which is a lot like katsu sauce. Your recipe is quite accurate - your parents must have great memories of this dish! I like mine with oysters, but any sort of seafood can be used - shrimp and squid are both quite popular!
