Make the kale chips
Heat the oven to 375°F.
Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil for the soba noodles.
- Strip the kale leaves from the stems; tear or cut the leaves into 2-inch pieces.
On a sheet pan [2 sheet pans], drizzle the kale with 2 to 4 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with the sesame seeds, and toss with your hands to coat. Spread in an even layer and bake, turning halfway through, until the kale chips are crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the soba noodles.
Cook the soba noodles
To the pot of boiling water, add the soba noodles and cook until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer to a cutting board and coarsely chop the noodles. While the soba noodles are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients; make the batter
- Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
In a medium bowl, massage the cabbage with 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] salt until it reduces in volume by about half. Pat dry with a paper towel.
Crack the eggs into a large bowl. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended. Stir in the cabbage, white parts of the scallions, chopped soba noodles, and okonomiyaki flour blend until combined. Season with pepper.
Cook the okonomiyaki
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1½ teaspoons [1 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Working in 2  batches, pour in half [one-fourth] of the batter and spread in an even layer. Cook, flipping once with two spatulas if needed (see Chef’s Tip), until the pancake is lightly browned and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
Transfer the okonomiyaki pancakes to individual plates. Generously brush with the tonkatsu glaze and drizzle with as much mayo as you like. Garnish with the green parts of the scallions and crumble as many kale chips as you like over the top. Serve the remaining kale chips on the side.
- Strip and tear the kale leaves.
- Toss the kale with oil and seasonings.
