*dango* and *mochi* are slightly different by their ingredients.
More precisely, they are made from different type of rice, therefore different  percentage of gluten. It makes mochi more sticky and chewy than dango.
Traditionally, dango is often sold in skewered.

明石焼きを食べました。

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?
