Takoyaki Pioneer. Serving up authentic Japanese street food since 2001.
service slow af
Yum! But only has few seats.
Grab lunch or a late night drunken snack with a friend here and split a Combo B. Trust me – it's enough food for three!
Yaki soba and takoyaki Combo C
Japanese street food, new york style...definitely try balls freshly made
Takoyaki in a pinch
It's not the best but it's good enough for some authentic Japanese snacks! The new matcha cake is so so. Enjoying sitting outside with friends and eat
takoyaki & okonomiyaki $7-9, hazelnut and banana medetai $3
hot, crispy outside, chewy inside, cheap, tasty. a must cheap eat in the east village!
first time here and really liked the takoyaki. waited like 15 minutes for it but it was fun watching them make it and it tasted good! wish it had more tako though
Okonomiyaki is so good that is worth waiting. ❤️
The takoyaki is always authentic and great. Just tried the okonomiyaki for the first time, and it was interesting...but delicious nonetheless! It's a small space, but that's one of its fun quirks!
looking for Japanese drunk food? this is it. and this is the best. get the combo B: okonominyaki with pork (you want that crispy bacon!) and takoyaki with extra bonito flakes (aka fish bacon)
Octopus balls which are originally called as "Takoyaki" are very interesting and tasteful. $7. No proper seatings, you just have to wish the bench outside is not taken.
New place lacks the charm of the old but the takoyaki is still delicious
Their takoyaki and shrimp yakisoba
Try the red bean-filled, fish-shaped taiyaki pastry thing.
Get the takoyaki while it's still piping hot. You can order okonomiyaki and udon as well.
pancakes with beef
Enjoy the stylized logo of a rabbit with a lead going up its butt. Nature is beautiful.
Great snack when you're hungry, just once in a while.
Larger location, still cash only :p
The food here isn't as good as it was when it first opened at it's original location. Sad because it used to be the best!
Their takoyaki (octopus ball) is unforgettable. Love it!
Takoyaki are Japanese fried balls of savory pancake-like patter, with octopus in the middle (they look a little like Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins).
Takoyaki are Japanese fried balls of savory pancake-like patter, with octopus in the middle. They’re served piping hot with gooey insides, and covered in a bunch of sauces and bonito flakes
They moved up the block, over by yakiniku west.
Takoyaki ve okonomiyaki combimasyonunu alın ikisinin de tadıha bakmış olun
Get some Takoyaki. Sit in front and people watch. Eat. Get some more. Repeat.
Pancakes were really delicious but the octopus balls were a bit of a let down... Try were quite cold as they had been sitting out.
Cute little Takoyaki stand. Sign says fits only 3 people so wait outside! Reminds me of Japan :)
Get combo B: okonomiyaki + 6 tokoyaki. V good
Awesome place for takoyaki
Okonomiyaki with corn + sriracha, literally one of the best things I've eaten in the city.
Takoyaki: it's alright. I've had worst and I've definitely had better. Yakisoba: one of the worst. Don't get the yakisoba; it's really oily and bland.
Takoyaki + Okonomiyaki or Yakisoba = 😻 Get it to go and eat it at Cooper Square (There's a nice seating area to the west of the Cooper Union foundation building)
Food here is substantially worse than it was 2 years ago and prior--especially the okonomiyaki and takoyaki. Both are now bland and undercooked.
Osaka style street food. Takoyaki, grilled bits of octopus cooked into a ball of batter. Okonomiyaki, Japanese for "What you love, grilled" is a savory Japanese pancake. Unique and delicious!
Takoyaki!!! Get em. You won't regret it.
Insanely slow, even at 9pm! Stood around waiting for 20 mins after ordering before getting our order of okonomiyaki
Great squid balls
everything. try everything. middle of the day= no wait.
Takoyaki balls!!!! Octopus are the best as that's how they're traditionally made, but they also come with squid, beef, pork, cheese and plain. Cash only and no sit down - but still AMAZING!!!
Amazing takoyaki (octopus balls with bonito [fish] flakes, homemade mayo, seaweed powder and Japanese BBQ sauce!!) - food is takeout and it's a capacity of 3 customers at a time inside!
The guys who work here said to get the pork (and never the squid). The yakisoba isn't as filling as the okonomiyaki
Eating fried octopus balls when you're hungover is not a good idea
