Very nice and cosy setting. We tried the takoyaki and the akashiyaki. Takoyaki was good but nothing outstanding. The akashiyaki though... mmm! Oishi! :)

TAKOMASA is one of the oldest takoyaki shops in Osaka. "Tako" means octopus and "Yaki" means grilled in Japanese. Takoyaki (often translated as octopus balls) is one of Osaka's popular dish/snack. It is made with a batter that has a wheat flour base and is commonly filled with minced octopus. Takoyaki is known as street/casual food in Osaka. At our Dotonbori shop, there are "to-go-menu" and "eat-in-menu". You can easily stop by and have some Takomasa's original soy sauce based takoyaki. OR you can take a break and relax during having some hot takoyaki inside the shop. Freshly-made takoyaki is extremely hot, so it requires caution when eating!! If you are a takoyaki lover, let's try "Do-It-Yourself Takoyaki"!! Our skilled takoyaki professionals will teach you how to make takoyaki. So don't worry! *Reservation Required* You can make a reservation for "Do-it-yourself Takoyaki" from 10:00 to 17:00. It will take about 1 hour to 1 hour and a half to make your own takoyaki. You can make 10 pieces of takoyaki per person.
