Takoyaki, which means “grilled octopus” in Japanese, is a snack of meat (often but not necessarily octopus), aromatics such as ginger and garlic, and dough dipped in batter and griddled in pans with hemispherical molds — sort of like deep waffle irons or traditional Yorkshire pudding molds.
Takoyaki is in the Adoption stage – it skews toward independent and casual-dining operators.
