Takoyaki (たこ焼き) - a popular Japanese fried ball shaped snack. Takoyaki is made of wheat flour batter and minced octopus, ginger and some green onion, and served with takoyaki sauce and mayonnaise, laver and dried bonito (dried fish garnish). I am not a fan of octopus, in fact I can’t stand the taste nor the smell, but photographing traditional Japanese food stands like this is delicious. It is something that always amazed me. Japan seems so clean and organised, yet when it comes to certain types of food and restaurants, such as this mobile frying pen, or so popular ramen stores, the filthier they are, the better the food is (well, at least in most cases).
