Takomasa: Takoyaki and akashiyaki
Takomasa, which became a household name with its ubiquitous TV ad that chants "Take me with you when you leave Osaka," hand-grills its takoyaki one by one. Made using well-matured soy sauce and carefully selected ingredients, the takoyaki are so light you feel you could eat unlimited quantities. Variations include negi-takoyaki (with leeks) and akashiyaki (which is dipped in broth). Takomasa's main branch at Dotombori offers "takoyaki taiken gakushu (hands-on takoyaki experience)" (by reservation and at ￥1,500 per person) for those who wish to try their hands at takoyaki making.
