"Takoyaki" translates to fried octopus and was first made popular by a street vendor in Osaka, Japan around 1935. It is a round dumpling that is cooked on a special pan. The main ingredient is cooked octopus. Every other ingredient is generally varied amongst the different vendors.
If you live in Seattle and love takoyaki or just wanted to try it, you've probably wondered, "Where do I get good takoyaki?". You might be able to find it at some restaurants but do you see what they're putting into it? Or even worse...it may have been purchased frozen and reheated in a microwave! That's no way to enjoy takoyaki. Tako Kyuuban is doing it the traditional way. We are making your takoyaki right in front of you, so you see what's going into it and serving it to you fresh off the grill. This is how traditional takoyaki is made in Japan and how it should be eaten.
