Takoyaki

Takoyaki (たこ焼き or 蛸焼) (literally fried or baked octopus) is a popular Japanese dumpling made of batter, diced octopus, tempura scraps (tenkasu), pickled ginger, konnyaku, and green onion, topped with okonomiyaki sauce, green laver (aonori), mayonnaise, and katsuobushi (fish shavings), originated in Osaka. Making takoyaki requires a takoyaki pan, a special frying pan made of cast iron with hemispherical molds.

Ready to eat

Takoyaki is kinda like snack and street food in Singapore. I like the way they doing Takoyaki. What I see is like rolling over and flipping it. When I watch the way they doing Takoyaki, it's reminded me of Myanmar Food "Mote Lin Myar" (Snack of Husband and Wife? lol). Takoyaki might look like fish ball. But this is way yummier than fish ball. The taste is good and unique because of mayonnaises and konnyaku (fish shavings). Have you tried Takoyaki before? In Singapore, the price is about 3 for S$2.
