2. Ootako Octopus
You can’t visit Osaka without trying takoyaki, the grilled octopus balls made with egg batter and filled with large chunks of octopus. Takoyaki is best eaten fresh and piping hot right out of the mold—the thinly shaved bonito flakes on top should still be swaying and fluttering from the heat. For takoyaki that doesn’t skimp on the seafood, pay a visit to and indulge in the popular street snack while people-watching on
the pedestrian street.
