So nostalgic! The takoyaki I once had in Dotonbori

When you’re hungry, it’s impossible to ignore the tempting smell of takoyaki sauce and just walk by…

Takoyaki (octopus dumplings) is a great snack for when you just want some little thing to nibble on.

Seeing that there were empty seats, I entered the chain takoyaki restaurant Kukuru, in the basement of Solamachi building.

I almost wanted to get the Solamachi Limited Takoyaki, but went with Ootakoiri Takoyaki instead, with big chunks of octopus in it.

I ordered at the counter and then waited at the table.

It’s pleasant to see the staff working efficiently!

The restaurant is quite small, with just one counter and five table seats. There seems to be a fast customer rotation.

As it was a hot day, I saw many customers enjoying a glass of beer with their takoyaki.

The Kansai Style Takoyaki is crispy on the outside and soooft on the inside

On each table, there are tall containers (that reminded me of the Skytree) filled with mayo and sauce. In the black containers, there is ginger and fried bonito and n the little one, aonori seaweed.

As I am not a big fan of mayo, I simply used ginger, dried bonito and sauce.

I did the mistake of putting a whole takoyaki in my mouth in one bite… It was so hot I almost burned myself! Ouch!

Make sure to blow on it before biting into it!

The outside is crispy and the inside, nice and fluffy. The big and soft octopus chunk was very tasty and didn’t have the strong seafood smell it sometimes does.

Unlike the standard Tokyo style takoyaki, it has a light texture, making it the perfect snack for in between meals!
