(260+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
Watch the chefs flip various "takoyaki" balls with chopsticks at Osaka Takoyaki Museum, a food court featuring a wide variety of takoyaki outlets. A paradise for takoyaki lovers, you can get a portion from a vending machine or be your own chef as you enjoy the famous Japanese snack, invented and popularized by an Osaka vendor and revered in the local area. You can learn about the history of the dish, the utensils required to make it, and its ingredients, which essentially consist of diced octopus in a wheat-flour batter. Get some souvenirs and take part in year-round events and games at the museum, which sits a short walk from Universal City station.

  • Located just between Universal City Train Station and Universal Studios. Inside are about 5 takoyaki stores where you can dine and eat the most famous Japanese snack. It also has a store that sells takoyaki ingredients and souvenirs.
  • Smells delicious. Full of activity.
  • Many different kinds of たこ焼き.
  • A very sorry place (¯-̄٥) was in a different place, and that I eat baked good. This is the Osaka takoyaki? It would seem I.

  • Eaten without aizuya sauce, and soy sauce. Size smaller than ones commonly known as takoyaki, spicy broth even women who can eat in one bite. By all means go. Put personally the advance chiizu Tako-yaki. Soft's towel. A few sweet dough and fit perfectly with the sweetness of the cheese on it. If I could go shop. Abeno kaminoyama-Chan personally recommended everything in sesame oil Salt takoyaki. Outside is crispy and thickens during Tako-yaki always. But in this novel and the new grilled Octopus! It's sesame oil Salt grilled Octopus! Evokes a few sweet dough salty and there strong accents of sesame oil! By all means go! It was 3 of argumentative. In temporal matters. (Tears
