So originally I wanted to go to Sons of Thunder for their poke but that stupid 6 train bypassed 33rd ST for no reason. I transferred to the R train at Union Square and I got off at 8TH ST NYU. From there, I let both my feet took me wherever they wanted to go to. as soon as I stopped in front of Otafuku, I knew I had to get in. I mean kinda funny tho, I have been wanting to go to Otafuku for quite some time. 😉
Name? Otafuku x Medetai
Where? 220 east 9th street, New York, NY, 10003 (8Th ST NYU N/R Trains, Astor Place 6 Train)
Hours: Sun – Thur 12 PM – 10 PM, Fri – Sat 12 PM – 11 PM
Type: takoyaki, okonomiyaki, taiyaki, Japanese street foods.
$ meter: $-$$
Extra notes: cash only, small place, Not good for parties over 4, two benches outside.
What I ordered? takoyaki and okonomiyaki combo. $11
To Sum Up: I can honestly say that this is the best Takoyaki I have ever had in New York City. period. They were very generous with the filling inside the tako balls – the tako was pretty big. One portion consists of 6 tako balls and they were cooked to perfection. They were not skimpy with the bonito flakes too. As for the okonomiyaki, well I have had better okonomiyaki elsewhere so next time I will just come back for the takoyaki. Or perhaps try their yakisoba and taiyaki!
Conclusion: I will be back! 😀
Yours Truly 🙂
