Fumio Tanga lives in Clapton and loves to cook. As part of the now weekly Chatsworth Road Market, he makes Osaka style okonomiyaki, a true street food hailing from Hiroshima, his home town.
With his only background in food working in one of the thousands of okonomiyaki restaurants in Hiroshima as a teenager, Fumio wanted his stall to be, above all things, fun. It’s something you can really tell from the easy, friendly service and spectacularly simple but absolutely delicious one dish menu.
After a busy day in the market, he told me about his special recipe, experimenting on his friends and the inspiration for picking up his spatula and starting the stall.
