Takoyaki is one of the most popular street snacks in Osaka. Little roadside stalls can be found everywhere, ready to serve up a batch of takoyaki when you need it most. But for the freshest, tastiest takoyaki, the best thing to do is to make it yourself.
To cook takoyaki, you'll need to use a special metal takoyaki mould (usually non stick), which are available at Japanese markets. These crispy golden takoyaki balls of deliciousness are super easy to tweak to your preferences. If you don't like octopus, you can substitute it with precooked bacon, ham, sausage or prawn. Try making it. These ball-shaped dumplings are fun to make with your friends and family!
