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.
