Takoyaki is a Japanese savory ball-shaped pancake that mainly consists of batter and octopus or any other filling you like.
The word "Tako" means Octopus, and the word "yaki" means grilled or cooked. Thus, you can add different toppings and ingredients to the batter base. The most common filling is of course octopus, but you can put squid, shrimp, cheese or anything you think would match with.
And for the toppings; takoyaki sauce, Japanese mayonnaise, katsuobushi (bonito flakes) or aonori (type of seaweed) makes takoyaki even better!
