  • Street food from Osaka

    Come to Okan and we'll tell you about our passion — Simple and delicious food, just the way it is served and eaten in the west parts of Japan.

  • Okan

    Okan means Mother in Osaka slang. It may sound rough but it is said with love. We do Okonomiyaki and Yakisoba, Osaka style, bringing our colourful childhood memories to Brixton.

At Okan we serve Osaka street food.

Osaka is where I grew up. An industrial, chaotic and colourful city filled with amazing food. Okonomiyaki is a savoury pancake, often served in tiny shops. Each shop will have its own character. Part of the joy of eating Okonomiyaki is seeing it being made right in front of you. Smelling it, hearing it sizzle and finally tasting it fresh off the griddle.

I have been serving okonomiyaki from street stalls around Brick Lane since 2002. With Okan in Brixton I want to introduce a new experience of okonomiyaki, served with a wide variety of toppings. I hope you feel a back street of Osaka in Brixton.

Moto, founder of Okan.
