Takoyaki here in the Philippines is really nothing like in Japan. But just because I miss the idea of it, I just can't take it anymore. This is how Takoyaki in Japan looks like. The thing is Takoyaki is supposed to have Tako (octopus) inside it right? And as much as I'm not a big fan of octopus, I still love Takoyaki. It's probably my favorite Jap food! :) This is how a Takoyaki would look like.
Like like like! As in, all the elements and stuff in it.
And this is how it looks like here in the Philippines. This isn't gonna be the first time I would be trying eating Takoyaki here but this isn't far from what it looks like. Like, even when it's freshly done. This one is brought home by mom from somewhere so it wouldn't be like, freshly made. But yeah. Whatever. Sweet and sour chili sauce is just not the best way to go. And then I can't even taste a single octopus which is like disappointing.
But since I missed my Takoyaki, this would do for a while. It's actually not that bad but you know, just like what Katy Perry said in her song "Thinking of You", "How do I get better once I've had the best?" and I am not so sure whether or not I've already tasted the best that there is in Japan. I've probably tried like, 5 different stores or so but whatever. It doesn't matter.
Anyway, just when I finished eating, I noticed that the name of the stall is Takuyaki and I wonder if they're trying to be unique or they actually made a mistake or whatsoever. But it doesn't matter. I should mind my own business sometimes.
I have friends who enjoy eating the Takoyaki they serve here and I am not against that or anything you know. If they like it, then awesome! :) So it's really a matter of preference.
