Takoyaki

Takoyaki (literally fried or grilled octopus) is a popular Japanese dumpling made of batter, diced or whole baby octopus, tempura scraps (tenkasu), pickled ginger, and green onion, topped with okonomiyaki sauce, ponzu, mayonnaise, green laver (aonori), and katsuobushi (fish shavings). First popularized in Taisho-era Osaka, where a street vendor named Endo Tomekichi is credited with its invention in 1935 . Takoyaki can be found in shops called issen-yoshoku which roughly translates to “one-penny Western food”.
