Just a 3 minute walk from Namba station, you will see an octopus signboard that stands out.You may recognize it really easily because there is usually a long line.
Their original takoyaki, "Bikkuri takoyaki", a takoyaki that has octopus' legs sticking out, is their famous menu. Also you should try their "akashi yaki" it is similar but slightly different from takoyaki, since you eat it with dashi (Japanese soup stock) soup. You can take out or eat inside.

Around a 4 to 6 minute walk from Namba station, here you can enjoy the traditional takoyaki. Outside is crispy and inside is melty, freshly made with a hand-made copper plate. You can take out and eat in! It is open from 8:30 am during weekends, so you can have it for breakfast too!

About a 15 minute walk from Nihonbashi station, this place has been loved by Osaka people for a long time, and has its history. As their name "Otako" (meaning big octopus) suggests, their octopus is huge! This place was featured on Michelin Guide too. Just try their takoyaki, and you'll be forever in love.

Takoyaki Yamachan (たこ焼 やまちゃん 本店)

According to Osaka people, Yamachan serves takoyaki with its true Osaka taste. Their takoyaki is very crispy on the outside and melty on the inside. Their one and only batter contains their original soup that is being simmered for four hours, and that is the reason for its popularity. They also have other menu such as okonomiyaki, yaki soba (fried noodles) etc so check it out! Very close from Tennoji station, Abenohashi station and Tennojieki mae station.

If you want to try an authentic takoyaki, this place is it. You can either take out or eat in. This place is where takoyaki was born. What distinct Aiduya from other takoyaki places is that their takoyaki is smaller compared to other places, plus they recommend to eat their takoyaki without any sauce or toppings.
