The Japanese street-food kiosk—an East Village staple since 2001—serves its same menu, now at larger digs a block from the original, expanding with a white-tiled open kitchen and a prepared-food section. On offer are Osaka specialties like takoyaki (grilled octopus balls), pork and shrimp okonomiyaki (cabbage pancakes) and sweets like daifuku mochi (strawberry, shiro).
