i my case for takoyaki initiated recently I got some help from Japanese friends.
The next place i was recommended no later than yesterday was Ebisu/戎 (one of the seven Luck Deities in Japan!)!

SN3O5036

Now, this particular takoyaki is Osaka-style because the son/chef did learn his trade in that big city!

SN3O5037

Smokers are requested to damage themselves outside in the cold!

SN3O5038

Now, as the place is really busy at lunch time (and around 17:00 when high school teens flock the place) I had plenty of time to take pictures to supply myself with enough information!

SN3O5039

I want this noren/暖簾/entrance curtain!

SN3O5041

My first order: takoyaki as they are! One can use sauces et al as he/she wants or have a small bowl of cold/hot dashi stock soup with it!

it was lunch time today and I was hungry, so I asked quite a few things to the surprise of the mother! It is a mother and son’s venture.
The mother is a great smiling lady with an almost maternal attitude towards her customers she repeatedly advise on how to eat her shy son’s preparations!

The small bowl of stock soup!

SN3O5042

You drop the takoyaki inside the stock soup, break it with your chopsticks (easy as they are soft) and eat ii by picking the pieces with your chopsticks. When you have finished you drnk the soup and all the tiny pieces you didn’t take out! Delicious until the very end!

SN3O5043

Next I ordered another serving seasoned with sauce, chopped scallions and white sauce (mayonnaise)!

For a closer view!

SN3O5046

Have a peek under to see how they are presented!

SN3O5045

As they are very hot, it is a good idea to break them first….

SN3O5047

and have a look inside!

SN3O5048

my third order: takosen!

SN3O5051

“takosen” is a combination of “tako” for “takoyaki” and “sen” for “senbei/rice cracker”!
The rice cracker is a large and thin but crispy and solid enough shrimp rice cracker which is broken manually to sandwich a couple of takoyaki inside and served inside a hamburger paper bag!

SN3O5052

The insides of the rice cracker are coated with no less than three seasonings!

SN3O5049

For a closer view!

SN3O5050

You may eat the lt as a sandwich/hamburger, but do be careful as it is flaming hot!
I guarantee you I ate it very slowly!

Mark: 91/100

I’m planning to visit the place again with a friend the day after tomorrow as I want to taste their ika yaki/girlled cuttle fish and yakisoba!
