Best Takoyaki in Penang

Written by Updated ago

These spongy meteors are quintessential Japanese snacks which quite right fits the palate of typical Malaysians. These gilded goodies are a marriage of wheat flour, minced octopus, green onions and pickled ginger, grilled on congkak-like molds. However our cravings have no limit, therefore, chicken, prawns, beef and other quirky combinations have joined the party to offer octopus a breather. After a few twist and turns, it’s showered with sauces, mayonnaise, shavings of dried bonito and seaweed. Be warned, nibbling this little snack is known to cause severe addiction, especially spots below.

    Takoyaki by FanitoHalal a81b201f94b2180a29928950eefa06850871fc85c2ba8fcb39753bdbcdfb49cfCertified

    An authentic Japanese snack along the streets of Kepala Batas? From far it resembles a typical burger stall yet slow down, it’s this poofy pearls which come in choices of octopus, crabstick, prawn, chicken and cheese and cheesy beef. Served piping hot, they are then liberally loaded with dried bonito, mayonnaise, spicy sauce and sprinkled with seaweeds. It’s so delectable; you’ll close your eyes and chew the takoyaki balls languidly.

    Dubbed as one of the best preparing freshly made takoyaki, they have vastly expanded across the country. Looking at their bouncy and dense balls swiveling on the sizzling hot molds literally throttles your salivary engine at once. Choices of filling include prawn, chicken and cheese, unagi and octopus yet if you’re flexing up your adventurous scale, opt for abalone, which is also known as marine snails. The takoyakis are stacked in a paper box, then a bouquet of herbs, slices dried bonitos, sweet and sour sauce and mayonnaise provide a mouthwatering gable. The speckles of charred marks being coated with rich layers of flavours are amazing.

    Tips

    Get all their flavours in one box, mix and match, guess the flavours

    Katsu Matsuri

    A humble restaurant at residential vicinity has been taking the local crowd by storm with series of straight-forward and succulent Japanese dishes. The most-buzzed about bite-size snack is their takoyaki balls. It’s arranged in traditional and floral porcelain and liberally doused with seaweed and bonito flakes and showered with mayonnaise and spreads of sauces. The smatterings of octopus are utterly delicious and complement the fluffy coating of flour.
