Fugetsu Okonomiyaki @ Isetan Foodmarket, KLCC

Have been wanting to try okonomiyaki for ages so was delighted that there was an okonomiyaki stall at Isetan Foodmarket which is manned by a Japanese chef.
Umainen Aiyanen
Fugetsu hails from Osaka, judging by the Kansai-ben (Kansai dialect) used on the noren (door curtain) - "Umainen Aiyanen".
The available flavours
The menu
The ingredients
As can be seen from the above picture, the okonomiyaki is made from tons of shredded cabbage, sliced Welsh onion, shavings of dried bonito flakes, an egg, bits of tempura batter and flour to hold it all together. Once the batter is cooked, mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce which is a thicker and sweeter version of Worchestershire sauce are slathered on the top.
Final product
Shichimi togarashi (Japanese seven spice powder) and dried parsley flakes are provided for additional flavouring.
Packed okonomiyaki
This okonomiyaki was fresh off the pan but surprisingly there is no condensation after being packed hence no chance of soggy batter =P
Prawn Okonomiyaki (RM 18)
The Japanese somehow engineered the packaging such that condensed water collects at the side of the box rather than drip onto the okonomiyaki.
Taken from above
The okonomiyaki is rather thick and is surprisingly very filling even though it only has a mountain of shredded cabbage. Four medium sized, shelled prawns were distributed equally on four corners of the okonomiyaki. The generous dollop of mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce as well as abundant dried bonito flakes gave sufficient flavour to the otherwise bland cabbage pancake.
The price is rather high but here, you can be assured of authentic okonomiyaki that tastes good =)
