Takoyaki and yakisoba are trendy street snacks that originated in Japan. Takoyaki is commonly known as the Japanese octopus ball serve with a signature savory sauce and mayo. While yakisoba is meant for stir-fried noodles.

We tried their new products like Scallop Cheese Melt, Yaki bento, and Milk bars.
Scallop Cheese Melt is a Takoyaki with scallop meat and cheese filling topped with cheese sauce and melted cheese. The balanced taste of scallop and cheese is perfect for seafood lovers. Takoyaki is also perfectly paired with yakisoba.
The cost for four (4) pcs of Takoyaki only serving is 59php, 109php for eight (8) pcs, and 159php for twelve (12) pcs. For Scallop Cheese Melt Soba serving, the price is different, 119php for solo and 129php for sumo order.
Yaki Bento is available in two (2) variants – Tonkatsu (pork cutlet) and Chicken Katsu Breaded deep-fried pork cutlet/chicken using premium meat imported from Brazil.
The meat is tender and flavorful with a crunchy golden brown coating. The bento box comes with rice, famous yakisoba, two (2) pcs of Takoyaki, and served with authentic katsu sauce as well. This is filling but very affordable too for only 149php. I also love their milk bars drinks which are the perfect partner when eating Takoyaki and Yaki bento.
They offer alfresco dining with minimal tables for health and safety protocols. By the way, we visited their Taguig branch. They are also open for franchises nationwide! You may contact them via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0956-7791150.
