Ministop - Okonomiyaki balls

It seems like one of the main Japanese convenient store chains, Ministop, is into Okonomiyaki menu items recently.

They released a one-handed Okonomiyaki at the beginning of this month, and soon they are going to start selling Okonomiyaki balls called "Okonomi-tama" on May 2.

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese dish (sometimes referred to as a Japanese savory pancake) that you cook on a hot griddle and eat with a lot of special Okonomiyaki sauce, fish flakes, mayonnaise, and green dried seaweed on top.

The Okonomi-tama has a fluffy texture and the flavor of Okonomiyaki containing pieces of squid.
