Takoyaki, gooey ball-shaped dumplings filled with octopus, are one of the most popular street foods in Japan. Using a special takoyaki pan designed with spherical molds, this yummy snack is made with just a few ingredients and topped with a special takoyaki sauce. The process of creating the balls requires a few minutes of constant rotating, which makes it a fun interactive event for family gatherings and parties!
We get it. Sometimes you're HUNGRY! Whether you've just summited a grueling trail or simply made it through your morning meetings, you need a wholesome, filling lunch that won't let you down. To put our bento boxes to the test, we cooked up a hearty 110 g (about 1/4 lb.) portion of pasta plus some sides to see if we could fit it all inside (spoiler: we could).
For a truly one-of-a-kind dining experience, explore our new handcrafted chopsticks from Style of Japan, like the Mother of Pearl Chopstick sets.
