The Octopus Ball, Takoyaki

Cooking experience with Kobe University's students in our first night here. Yaiy! So, we tried to made Takoyaki, or sometimes it called Octopus ball, It’s basically a flavored batter with a tiny piece of octopus (tako) inside. Yummy! It was first popularized in Osaka where a street vendor named Tomekichi Endo is credited with its invention in 1935 under the influence of Akashiyaki. Takoyaki was initially popular in Kansai but later spread to Kanto and other areas. Today, it is popular in many areas throughout Japan (Wikipedia).
