QMOTD: Otafuku x Medetai

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. 😉

Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki combo. I chose shrimp okonomiyaki.

 

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 🙂

    1. wah setauku takoyaki di Jakarta kalau yang enak mah gak dapet 1,000 an. minimal 12,000. ada favorit aku di Mall Kelapa Gading 3 lantai ground floor. itu enak banget. kayanya masih ada deh, namanya kalo gak salah Ippeke Komachi. dia ada resto sama take away gitu. nah yang take away stand ada di sebelah resto nya.
