See how a common Japanese snack is made in a quick video we’re featuring for the day.

From green onion and diced or minced octopus to tenkasu to pickled ginger, the wheat-flour battered Takoyaki has always been a favorite Japanese snack that is now available for travelers to eat in the side walks. This ball-shaped bite has been named so because it is grazed with takoyaki sauce, the taste of which is comparable to mayo and Worcestershire sauce.

Learn more on how Takoyaki is made in this clip shot by Asif Siddiky in Osaka.

Prior to my trip to Japan, one of the things I looked forward to the most was eating takoyaki. This street vendor in Osaka was kind enough to let me shoot the entire incredible process… A popular Japanese dumpling made of batter, diced or whole baby octopus, tempura scraps (tenkasu), pickled ginger, and green onion, topped with okonomiyaki sauce, ponzu, mayonnaise, green laver (aonori), and katsuobushi (fish shavings). [Note: Unfortunately, the customer who placed the order in this video did not ask for the aonori or katsuobushi (both taste amazing. I don't know what was wrong with that person)]
