Are you a fan of fried octopus ball? It’s better known as Takoyaki by the Japanese.
Takoyaki is a ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special grill pan. It is typically filled with minced or diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and chopped green onion.
I spotted this Takoyaki stall while I was doing some shopping in Uptown Danau Kota Midnight Bazaar a couple of days ago. It’s located somewhere along the strip of the bazaar.
I couldn’t resist. I’ve always been a huge fan of this particular Japanese street snack. I knew I must have it.
Here’s the Takoyaki men preparing the Takoyakis. Takoyaki are brushed with takoyaki sauce, a sauce similar to Worcestershire sauce, and then topped with generous amount of mayonnaise.
Here’s my takoyaki after a few minutes of waiting. The takoyaki is sprinkled with green laver and shavings of dried bonito too . It’s absolutely yummy, and I highly recommend those who love this Japanese snack to try out the takoyakis in this particular street stall.
The folks who manned the stall is not only friendly, but the price of the takoyaki they sold is reasonable too. It’s Rm5 for a set of 5 piece Takoyaki balls. It comes in 3 fillings option: octopus, prawn and crabsticks.
Just keep a lookout for the red stall in the Uptown Danau Kota midnight bazaar. You can’t miss it.
Cleffairy: I can never get enough of takoyaki.
