Who: Visiting konamon shops from Japan include Fuugetsu (Hokkaido), Okonomiyaki Imari (Tokyo), Acatoki (Mie Prefecture), Takoyaki Bar Tom (Aichi Prefecture) and monja-yaki CHICO (Tokyo). Representing New York will be locals: Karl's Balls, BentON, Fuji Yakisoba and Osaka-ya. Why: If you are Osaka street food literate, you are probably familiar with konamon — or Japanese flour food — which includes the foodie cult favorite okonomiyaki ("Japanese pizza") and takoyaki (bite-size balls filled with octopus). Die-hard street food aficionados can save themselves a round-trip ticket to Osaka and experience the best in authentic Konamon. Cooking competition junkies will not want to miss the flour food equivalent of Iron Chef: New York versus Japan.
