“Takoyakiza” in Namba

I've found the most luxurious Takoyaki where the inside is lovely and soft!

Today I went to “Takoyakiza”, a Takoyaki store in Namba.

The area around Namba Grand Kagetsu is like a Takoyaki store battleground – there are loads of them! It’s my first time to visit this particular store. I was very impressed by how delicious it was!

‘Takoyaki (extra small)’, 350 yen. I was very happy to see this option for a small box of only 6 Takoyaki balls. There was a selection of seasonings – ‘brown sauce’, ‘soy sauce’, and ‘garlic soy sauce’. I went for the ‘brown sauce’ seasoning this time.


Wow! So good!
The middle of the Takoyaki is amazingly soft!
The dough itself has been seasoned – this is top quality Takoyaki! I have been living in Osaka for such a long time that I am almost embarrassed to say I never knew Takoyaki could be his delicious. I’m looking forward to trying the other seasoning options available!


The also sold frozen Kirin beer!


I was in heaven as I ate the delicious Takoyaki with this frozen Kirin beer!


‘Takoyaki (extra small) 350 yen + ‘Beer’ 500 yen = a total of 850 yen!





The drink menu is full of drinks that won’t hurt the wallet!


There is seating available on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. On the 2nd and 3rd floor you can also eat a variety of other cuisines such as Okonomiyaki. I’m sure I’ll be back again and again!
