I tried takoyaki for the first time while in NYC’s Japantown earlier this year. They were the perfect street food and I hope I’ll have the chance to try them in Japan sometime. Gloria loves takoyaki and they were just as good as she¬†said they’d be.

At Otafuku, a 6 piece order of octopus takoyaki is $5. Otafuku¬†only has 3 items on their menu. Takoyaki, yakisoba, and okonomiyaki. There aren’t even tables in the place. You either stand inside at the “bar”, but only if there aren’t any other patrons inside or sit on the small bench in front of the restaurant to enjoy some yummy Japanese treats.

Lucky eaters of said takoyaki
