Pig Out Disaster: Ton Ton Tei Takoyaki

Ton Ton Tei Takoyaki
Php 25.00 or $ 0.58 (per 3 pcs.)

In terms of "authentic" Takoyaki, I have no experience at all. So forgive me if I try to give myself a temporary high through the mushrooming takoyaki stalls in malls and supermarkets here. BUT! If there is one thing I've learned in trying out these obviously cheap "takoyaki", it's that it will never satisfy the foodie in me. Case in point: Ton Ton Tei Takoyaki.

I believe there were no octopus bits, and the vegetables weren't that generous either. In my experience, Kuya Chito's Takoyaki is more overloaded with vegetables than this. The sauce is forgettable. I'm not quite sure but it's somehow like the sauce for fresh lumpia minus the sweetness. Samurai's Takoyaki sauce's sweet and spicy blend is definitely waaaaay better than this. It's somehow funny that their line is "When you think of takoyaki....think of Ton Ton Tei." 

If there ever will be another time I will eat takoyaki again, It better be the real thing.
