The Skinny: Went to Little Tokyo in Los Angeles to play around with my digital cameras and came across a Nisei festival and a Takoyaki stand named Takoyaki Tanota. In general I love Octopus, which is also why I love Takoyaki and this find was a treat!
The Good: The painfully hot pancake balls with chunks of Octopus was just that. They burnt the insides of my mouth, but the portion size of the Octopus nuggets were good and made it worth while. 5 dollars bought me 8 pieces and they were all delicious. I got the regular Takoyaki sauce but they also have Ponzu and Jalapeno versions.
The Bad: It’s not the most filling meal in the world, but then again, it is just a snack really.
Would you come back again? Sure, if I’m lucky enough to come across it again.
