It was my Tita Azon who first introduced mo to Takoyaki. At first I didn't like it... It has this awful spice that didn't really appeal to the taste of youngsters. But then years passed and I got older and decided to try it out one more time... and oh boy! I was so into it!
I like it when it's super hot it'll burn your mouth.
There are other brands who offer Takoyaki but I don't have the courage to try it out. I got accustomed to the Samurai's taste so I don't have the guts to try others. I don't really know the authenticity of the taste because I haven't been to Japan--where the recipe originated, but so far this Samurai brand is by far the best in town.
