Ordered the salted Takoyaki, so I can’t say for the other flavours. Takoyaki were small and not crispy, unlike the other Takoyaki I have tried throughout the trip. Definitely not a fan of it because I wasn’t able to find or taste the octopus. I...More

Close to Namba subway station and in a small alley just off a busy arcade is Akaoni offering only Takoyaki - octopus balls. Cheaper that the main thoroughfares is a bonus. Very good example and be sure to try both plain and salted before saucing...More

While waiting in line for okonomiyake at Mizuno I picked up 8 takoyaki for our group to nibble on. Great flavor, super fresh octopus, and the outside was perfectly cooked while the inside was a little soft - like a well cooked pancake. The sauce...More

This is a reasonable place in Dotombori to enjoy some Okonomiyaki and a few beers. They also have some Yakisoba to try.

This is a takoyaki place, so the picture of sashimi is misleading. We've had our fair share of takoyaki in our lives and this is ranked pretty close to the bottom. Our food took forever to come even though no one was in front of...More

Our speciality is cooking takoyaki with fresh raw octopus!! We got Michelin award2016!! Normally, cooking takoyaki with boiled octopus is common. But, we use fresh row octopus to cook takoyaki. Boiled and raw are very different taste. I would like you to try our takoyaki and the other our traditional Osaka foods at Doutonbori Akaoni! We use Hokkaido`s seaweed and Kagoshima`s dried sliced bonito for making soup . We use organic eggs, flour and a few other ingredients. When these ingredients mix , it makes our special takoyaki soup. This takoyaki soup and fresh raw diced octopus cook in a special takoyaki pan. Please watch our performance while we are cooking your takoyaki. I would like you to enjoy our food and our city, Osaka.
