IKEBUKURO Tobu dept store: Gindaco Takoyaki... if you want a taste of Kansai (Osaka) casual yum yum snacks then this spot is a must (all over Tokyo)

If you are craving just alittle bit between meals where do you go?  Ramen is easy but a bit too much volume... Onigiri (rice ball) is fun but you have to stand outside the Convenience store to eat it... then the best choice becomes Tako-Yaki (Octopus treats) originally from Osaka.

We went for the special... 6 pieces of basic Takoyaki with 1 drink for 500yen.

This spot is located in Ikebukuro Tobu Dept store... a very basic layout.

There are a few varieties of Taco-Yaki toppings... 

The Taco-Yaki Chef making lots of balls. If you feel just a tad hungry then give Gidanco a try... a little more than the McDonalds Dollar menu or 100yen Onigiri's at the Lawsons but you'll get to taste a little bit of what Japanese crave.
