Octopus balls that is. A delicious hole in the wall called Otafuku at 236 East 9th Street, near 2nd Avenue. There are three affordable dishes here, Octopus Balls, takoyaki, Savory Pancakes, Okonomiyaki, and Noodles, Yakisoba. There is nowhere to sit here save for a bench just outside, so march up second avenue to tenth street where you can sit outside of St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery.
When you are on the go and low on cash this is the perfect place to stop in for something amazing.
