Feel free to follow favy!
Takoyaki is a ball-shaped snack made with wheat flour batter filled with minced or diced octopus. The toppings include takoyaki sauce, mayonnaise, and shavings of dried bonito.
Created in Osaka in 1935, it quickly spread across Japan and is today one the most beloved Japanese street foods.

Takoyaki Senmon Ten Osakaya

Open since 1986, this takoyaki shop is almost a national treasure.
They recently changed locations, but the crowd followed, so expect long lines to taste their Osaka specialty. They only serve two portions, 8 balls (¥280) or 15 balls (¥500). It's totally worth it!

Takoyaki Dining 8864

Being a street food, many takoyaki shops don't have places to sit. So if you're looking for a place to enjoy your takoyaki with a drink and just relax, 8864 is perfect.
Choose from a variety of drinks and takoyaki toppings, and leave with a full belly for 3,000 yen.

Ginza Fukuyoshi

Fukuyoshi is also an izakaya-like takoyaki shop. The secret of their delicious octopus-balls is that they mix dashi in the batter, accentuating, even more, the taste of seafood.
During the day, you can get 8 balls for 550 yen. Must try!


Koteya offers only three flavors that you can choose from, takoyaki sauce, onion & mayonnaise, and dashi stock. The old-school appearance and the commitment to the traditional recipe makes this shop a favorite for the locals.


At Takoazabu you can go crazy tasting up to 11 kinds os takoyaki! You can even get a truffled one for 1,200 yen.
Another feature that makes them very famous is that you can order takeout.
You can choose from staying in and enjoying the young crowd that usually surrounds the shop, or take the delicious snack to the comfort of your home. Win-win!
