"Katsutako" located in Toyooka 12 Jo, sales takoyaki and oyaki, and each has three flavors.
Since it’s our writer’s first time here, he ordered a mainstream takoyaki with sauce for the time being.
"I want to give you a freshly made product, so can you give me some time?” Was what the staff said, surprising our reporter.
The staff will even bring you the freshly made takoyaki to your car as soon as it's done.
With this kind of service, we can expect a lot from this shop.
Of course, you can also eat inside the restaurant to enjoy your dish in a retro stylish atmosphere.
The taste you are interested in is the so-called Osaka-style takoyaki, which is soft on the outside and juicy on the inside.
The octopus inside was big, yet it’s only 400 yen.
The sauce and mayonnaise are lighter than the ones sold on the market.

"Tako Karatto" in Toyooka 7 Jo is a store specialised in fried chicken and takoyaki.
The prefabricated hut in the residential area is easy to find.
A cute illustration of a chicken with "ONEICHAN" written on it is drawn on the wall.
I ordered takoyaki immediately ♪
Three flavours are available: sauce, salt, and bald (nothing is added).
Yellow chose the sauce.
Firstly, the most surprising thing about this shop is the size of one takoyaki ball. It’s huge.
Our writer’s mouth is big and can handle well hot foods by “huffing” them out. But this time, the ball was so big that he almost burned his tongue.
It may be better to eat it by dividing it in two or waiting a bit for them to get a bit cooler.
The soup stock and sauce of the dough are well-balanced, and the inside of the takoyaki melts in your mouth and is delicious.
Our writer ate the takoyaki after lunch, and since the size of one ball is huge, six big takoyaki are enough to make your tummy feel cramped.
The shop is close to the residential area, so it may be a good snack for growing children.
