Has anyone seen Takoyaki lately?
The version I remember from a summer living in Tokyo was at the Mitsukoshi department store lunch counter. It was a small lunch counter in a corner of the store served only (or mostly) Takoyaki balls like in the picture below atop a mound of shredded raw (completely raw) green cabbage with dark sweet sauce in squirt bottles on the counters.
