Takoyanen for takoyaki (octopus balls) - Thurs Ferry Bldg Farmers' Mkt, SF

I wanted to try Takoyanen from the Delicia people. They have a stand outside at the Ferry Bldg Farmers' Market on Thurs from 10a-2p.

Only thing they sell are the takoyaki (octopus balls) 8 for $5 & individual size Ito En tea bottles $2.25. Don't eat them right away because they are hot. I looked around for a table & took a bunch of pics before starting & still too hot. They grill them, then they put a shoyu glaze, sprinkle of green onions, mayo, & bonito flakes.

I thought they needed to be cooked more. Too mushy & not much octopus in them. The toothpicks don't help pick them up since it's just a goopy mess, forks or chopsticks would be better.

It's all about the timing here too. I got the last of a batch they just made. If they run out, then you have to wait 15 min to get your order. Tried it, probably won't get it again.

nyone else try it?
