Takoyaki anyone?

Takoyaki anyone? Or more to What the hell is Takoyaki?

Here is a little introduction of Takoyaki @ simply-edwin.blogspot.com. Takoyakis are a popular Japanese dumpling which consist of batter, chopped cabbage, spring onion and not forgetting Octopus. It is topped with Okonomiyaki sauce, Ponzu, Mayonnaise, Katsuobushi (Fish Shavings) and Wasabi sauce.

They are very delightful stuff to chew. Japan Boat Takoyaki is a Franchise which orignated from Osaka, Japan. Over the years they have spread their wings to Hong Kong, Taiwan and gradually in 2001 into mainland China. Their growth was tremendous as in 2003 they expanded their Franchise into Canada and the United States of America.

They ventured into the Malaysian market in 2008, with the establishment of Japan Boat Takoyaki Sdn Bhd (equivalent to Pte. Ltd.) in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. 2 years later the franchise was brought into the bustling city of Kuching, Sarawak. JB Takoyaki is very new in the Kuching market. Over the years locals has mimicked the making of Takoyaki, but none of them make them as good as JB Takoyaki. Theirs are Big, delicious and with wasabi sauce too! The batter for JB Takoyaki is send in from Taiwan and Japan to make sure the quality is there,hence the good texture and mouthwatering smell and the gastronomical taste to it.

Cooking the Takoyakis

After taking JB's Takoyakis I have found my new love. It was simply delicious and best taken when it is still pipping hot. JB Takoyakis are topped with pepper, chilli powder, mayonnaise and wasabi sauce, which is a sinful combination.

The timing of when you take a vacation is really important. If you keep all the planning and organizing for the last minute, then the chances are that everything will be booked and over expensive.
