Takoboy Takoyaki is a takoyaki eatery predominantly based in Presint 14, Putrajaya that was founded in August 2012, with many other outlets spread throughout the country in places like Penang, Kota Bharu, Nilai, Kajang, as well as Muar and Skudai when it comes to the state of Johor. The aim behind the team responsible for Takoboy Takoyaki is to bring the authentic takoyaki experience in a scale that’s manageable and with affordable prices for the public. This is done by importing a number of ingredients from Japan, in particular the seaweed powder, bonito flakes, and mayonnaise. The eatery also uses a takoyaki batter mix that’s made from scratch regularly to ensure freshness and consistency.
When it comes to the takoyaki served here, the recipe largely remains unchanged, with the takoyaki balls themselves taking approximately 10 minutes to prepare and the additional ingredients mimicking that of the takoyaki in Japan, which include the aforementioned seaweed powder, bonito flakes, Japanese mayonnaise, as well as yakitori sauce (even regularly referred to as Japanese Worcestershire sauce). Besides the quintessential octopus filling, customers can choose to have their takoyaki filled with ingredients such as cheese sausage, chicken & cheese, and crab meat.
The great thing to note about Takoboy Takoyaki is that they also can do catering services for functions and parties, and have done so numerous times. So if you’re looking to experience an authentic yakitori experience in Johor Bahru that’s easy on the wallet, then Takoboy Takoyaki is most definitely the prime candidate.
