Tsukiji Gindaco, a Place for Takoyaki (Octopus Ball)

Takoyaki is a ball-shaped  Japanese snack that is made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a specialized takoyaki pan. Inside it is filled with chopped octopus and vegetables and on top it is brushed with takoyaki sauce.  This is my daughter’s favorite food.  She calls them Octopus Balls.  Gindaco, a fast food chain takoyaki restaurant, serves crunchy,  fresh baked takoyaki for a very reasonable price.
