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. Mix all ingredients together, then turn onto the greased grill in one heap.
  2. Flatten it a little. Fry like an omelet or a pancake, turning several times to brown well on both sides.
  3. Serve with sprinkled with Japanese dark red pepper, soy and worchestershire sauces.
  4. 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!
