1. Slice the rings of squid to open them up. Chop the tentacles into pieces, too.
2. Heat some oil in a frying pan and cook the squid.
3. Once the squid has cooked through, slightly beat the eggs and pour on top of the squid.
4. Press down on the mixture with a spatula to spread it out evenly.
5. Once browned, flip it over. It will break apart easily, so be careful! Once again, press down with the spatula to even it out and evaporate the moisture.
6. Once the moisture has evaporated, the eggs have cooked through, and it's lightly browned, it's done!
7. Top as you like with okonomiyaki sauce and mayonnaise! If you're watching your egg intake, use 2 eggs.
