Takoyaki Stand

smIMG_5591, originally uploaded by Mollybot.

While looking for escape routes just in case I accidentally found myself in possession of a Fugu Lantern. . . a busy Takoyaki stand in old Osaka.
Thanks to mollybot again for use of her photo as I was somewhat busy that day.

  1. Takoyaki is evidently very popular!

    It is easy to eat street food. It comes in paper dish just the right size to hold in your hand if you want to keep walking. They look just like the drawing on the sign.

  3. I'm really enjoying your posts from Japan, Parsnip. It's almost like being there.

  4. I agree with Joanna. And so very different to a stroll round Minehead:)

  5. I'm glad you are enjoying the photos! This stand was the most popular one by the tower! Their sign is so gorgeous.

    We should have bought ourselves some of those red takoyaki lanterns when we were at the restaurant supply store! how funny would have that been to have in the house!

    So glad you are enjoying the photos. Trying not to bore you all too much !
    Wonderful new banner photo !

    I love your photos of Minehead ! It is the tourist in me. Can't help it.

    I couldn't get the huge Fugu lanterns on the plane but the Takoyaki ones I could have packed !
    Silly me !

    I love your photo they are taken fast but always come out fabulous. Notice how many I have used lately !
    You are so right about the Restaurant Supply Store... I think my brain was fried by the heat !

  7. It does look like a popular stand. I've never had octopus dumplings, sounds like a delicacy.

  8. I too, feel like you are giving me a real taste of Japan without the cost of going there. Very nice.

    Takoyaki is really street food to eat while walking or sitting anyplace and sharing. Round little balls of fluffy dough with a small piece of octopus in it
    served with sauce, Bonito flakes and a toothpick.
    so good.

    Oh but the pure fun of it and the food ! ! !
