New Yorkers aren't lacking options for highbrow street eats, among them top-notch lobster rolls, killer Mexi-Korean tacos and scoops of artisanal ice cream. But 23-year-old designer Kosei Shido, along with his mother, stepfather and his uncle Yasuhiko Okada, may be the first to bring Japanese soul food to Gotham's boulevards, with the Okadaman Food Truck, which hit the road on June 22. Chef Okada, an Osaka native, will dish out the savory Japanese pancake okonomiyaki, made in two styles: Osaka (fried pork) and seafood (squid). He stuffs both varieties with cabbage, red ginger and tempura bits, and then tops them with bonito flakes and seaweed, plus drizzles of Japanese mayo and the thick Worcestershire-like okonomiyaki sauce. Eaters can also pick up yakisoba (fried noodles with cabbage and pork), takoyaki (fried octopus) and kara-age (fried chicken with ponzu sauce). For locations, visit okadamannyc.com (646-531-7113)
