There’s a new little mobile pop-up around town called Osaka Eki. The vendor specializes in Japanese-style street food. They were out at the Chainlink Gallery Place, and I decided to swing by during the first week of food trucks at the downtown creative space.
This blog will be pretty brief as it was their first day out for the Chainlink Gallery Place. It looks like they were just testing the waters and had one item on the menu, doggoyaki. It was a grilled hot dog topped with takoyaki sauce, Japanese mayo, roasted seaweed, smoked bonito, tempura pearls, pickled red ginger and green onion.
The doggoyaki was two for $10. It was a good little meal. I enjoyed their hot dog spin on the Japanese snack dish, takoyaki. To be honest, I would have preferred takoyaki, but that’s all they had on the menu that day.
They said they planned to introduce more dishes over time, which is what I would probably wait for if I were to return. Don’t get me wrong, I love hot dogs and had nothing wrong with their dish, but wouldn’t mind seeing some other Japanese street foods they have.
Here’s the menu they had that particular day.
