Included In

Otafuku x Medetai is a small Japanese street food restaurant in the East Village. It specializes in takoyaki (doughy balls stuffed with grilled octopus) and okonomiyaki (savory pancakes). They also make a dessert called Taiyaki, which is a fish-shaped puff pastry filled with Nutella and banana. We are big fans for takeout lunch, but they have a few counter seats if you want to dine in.
