Favorite Foods: Takoyaki

#‎favoritefoods‬ Wednesday:

Takoyaki! My absolute favorite Japanese food so far. Fried dough balls, stuffed with chopped octopus tentacle, often topped with a special sauce, mayonnaise, and bonito flakes. I tried it for the first time at the Novi Japan Festival senior year of high school, not knowing that it had octopus in it (they advertised it in English as "fried pancake balls" or something like that). But it was love at first bite! Since then I've had the real thing in its birthplace of Osaka, as well as some great renditions of it stateside. The outside's crisp, the inside's chewy, and the whole thing just melts in your mouth!

So, what are you all's favorite foods (NON-Thanksgiving dishes included)? ‪#‎fatnessfirst‬
