All-You-Can-Eat Takoyaki!! Gindako Ikebukuro Nishi-Guchi (Tokyo)
The Ikebukuro Nishi-Guchi location of the famous takoyaki chain 'Gindako' is the only location in Tokyo to offer an all-you-can-eat and drink plan! If you're a fan of takoyaki, this is your chance to eat as much takoyaki as your heart desires for 60 minutes! We went to try it for ourselves!
Takoyaki Lovers Rejoice! Tokyo's Only All-You-Can-Eat Gindako!
The staff was constantly grilling the takoyaki and carrying it to the table as it finished cooking. A 4-piece takoyaki boat is normally priced at ¥290, so in order to get our ¥2,160 money's worth, we would need to eat at least 7.5 orders within the 60-minute time limit. This didn't seem like it was going to be any trouble, considering the quick pace.
Crispy Outside, Gooey Inside!
The batter is made up of Gindako's original takoyaki flour mix, water, tenkasu (fried puffed rice), green onion, and pickled ginger. This has been the restaurant's main and most-popular item since its opening.
The taste is excellent and goes wonderfully with a cold beverage (also unlimited for the 60 minutes!)
The Classic Takoyaki Isn't the Only Item That's Unlimited!
