The owners of Bushwick's Japanese newcomer Okiway took their inspiration from the Kabukicho District of Japan, decorating their clean and modern space with mounted colorful skateboards and kitschy action figures. The menu's focused on modern takes on Japanese snacks like okonomiyaki, or savory Japanese pancakes, updated here in a Mexican number (stuffed with chorizo, avocado, cilantro, chipotle, and crema) and an American barbecue option (with pulled pork and barbecue sauce). The small plates menu also offers cactus sashimi and wasabi guacamole. Izakaya fare is designed to pair with booze, and it's no different here. The bar offers a selection of Japanese beers (including one that's made with wasabi) and sakes.
