dango and mochi
Akashi-yaki is almost takoyaki, but it’s more savory and the texture is softer.
You soak it in the dashi soup as you eat.
It’s not as popular as takoyaki..or in other words, it’s not very popular except in Akashi city and its neighborhood area. Akashi city is about 20min.from Kobe by train, and there you will find many Akashi-yaki restaurants whichever way you may go!
When I was little, there weren’t this many different flavors of Pocky available.
Chocolate, almond, milk, strawberry…what else did I have?
My favorite was almond flavor, the one half seen on top right in this picture. It’s still my most favorite of all for some nostalgic reason:)
How about you? What’s your most favorite?
