The dough, made with a dashi stock prepared from seven varieties of ingredients and mixed with Japanese yam, is flavorful, spongy, and addictive. In addition to standard takoyaki sauce, the shop also offers a negipon spring onion and yuzu sauce as well as a popular black pepper and salt mayonnaise. Eat-in space available.
