If you like big portions of tasty yakisoba and small prices, you’ll like Okan in Brixton Village. This Osaka-style Japanese spot doesn’t have a lot of seating, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in pork belly okonomiyaki, thick yaki udon, and their excellent signature king prawn and squid yaki soba. Everything here is under a tenner and comes with a proper serving of bonita fish flakes, seaweed flakes, and Japanese mayonnaise, so it’s perfect for a quick sit down situation or to takeaway. If you’re able to grab a table here in the evening, get involved in the sides and their plum wine too, and enjoy the buzz of the open kitchen.
