Although the store is not entirely dedicated to Takoyaki, this Japanese delivery service offers a fine dining experience along with some Takoyaki choices, all HALAL! Their main selling point is that they are lovingly made at home by a SAHM (Stay At Home Mum).
Having taken specialized lessons from the senpais themselves, she was able to find her passion for creating beautifully tasting Japanese meals. If you're looking to eat a variation of Japanese delights, not just TakoYaki, Inari-Ku is the place to go. You can have some sushi with Inari aged skin, alongside Takoyaki platters with all your classic flavors. The Takoyaki can be a starter to your Udon Noodle meal or Ebi Tendon (a rice bowl served with miso soup, potato salad, and stir fry). The combinations are endless!
