This toothpaste tastes like balls…
*Takoyaki literally meaning “burnt 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).
