Takoyaki at Kita-shinchi, Takohachi, Kita-shinchi (たこ八 北新地 大阪), Osaka,

The rare sophisticated style of Takoyaki in Osaka
 
I had never imagined about Takoyaki without the brown Takoyaki sauce. I was wondering in front of the stand of Takohachi, if the Takoyaki without sauce will be delicious or not.
 
The beginning of meeting Takohachi was the Barman whispering about his recommendation. He make sure that I was come from Tokyo and I imagined as the normal Taokoyaki in Osaka. He suggested me to visit the Takoyaki stand of Takohachi, three minute distance from the Bar.
On my visiting to Takohachi, I ordered Takoyaki as normal. The unfriendly staff react with seeing an alien who spoke Japanese. The smell coming from the stand was very lovely with braising soy sauce and baked flowers. He quietly handed me a box filled with eight balls of Takoyaki.
I rushed back to the park in front of the Bar and opened the box of Takoyaki. The lovely smell as the front of the stand had come to my nose. The colour of the ball was right brown as tanned under the sun. The soft texture and soy sauce base taste was lovely. The tenkasu (crunchy bits of fried dough from Tempura) gave strength or body into the tastes. This was the first time to have the soy sauce based Takoyaki.
 
This Takohachi is the chain stores around Osaka area. I highly recommend you to visit to have a little bit different taste of Takoyaki.
