    These posts about tare, Worcestershire and sauce really clarify the subtle differences they have. I have found that Okonomiyaki sauce and yaki soba sauce (Japanese brands I can get here in the states), are very similar, but are not the same. Do you purchase a variety of sauces, or is there a favorite that you use for many things?

      Thank you for commenting!
      I like using Bull-Dog sauce for many things, such as Tonkatsu, thin-sliced cabbage, croquette, Menchi Katsu (minced meat cutlet), and Furai, while for Okonomiyaki, Takoyaki, and Yakisoba, I prefer Otafuku sauce!
      Not only me, but I think many Japanese also think so!
