    In case you were wondering, those signs are for Tako-yaki takoyaki  in japanese kana and kanji, literally meaning “fried octopus” or “grilled octopus”, is a ball-shaped dumpling made of a piece of batter and cooked in a special takoyaki pan. The batter is typically filled with diced or whole baby octopus, pickled ginger, spring onions, and crispy tempura scraps (tenkasu). Tako-yaki is usually brushed with the slightly sweet brown tokayaki sauce and mayonnaise, and topped with with aaonri (green laver, or green seaweed) and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).

    Just a language note:
    The word Takochan comes from tako meaning in Japanese “octopus” and chan meaning “darling”—in other words, ‘Little Miss Octopus’ or ”Darling Cthulhuesque Cephalopod.’

    It turns out that “Tako-chan” is a Dumbo octopuses
    …Dumbo octopuses (Grimpoteuthis) have ear-like fins that resemble the ears of Disney’s flying elephant Dumbo. These octopuses live at depths of 3,000 to 4,000 metres below sea level and hover just above the seafloor, hunting for food. Although little is known about them, researchers believe there are at least 18 different species of dumbos—the largest ever recorded was 1.8 metres in length and weighed 6 kilos.
