Yamatoya Takoyaki at Food Culture AEON Mall BSD City

Yamatoya at Food Culture AEON Mall BSD City: Super Takoyaki!!

A very popular Japanese snack, takoyaki the octopus balls. To be compared with some others that I had in Jakarta and around, here at Yamatoya was my best takoyaki experience so far. It is inside of Food Culture AEON Mall not too far from Kushiya Monogatari, yes currently the hippest shopping mall in Serpong. Dominated with Japanese food tenants and the AEON supermarket also offers wide selection of sushi and some Japanese snacks. But, please do a queue at Yamatoya first then tell me.

What makes it special here, the size of delicious octopus chunks, crispy on the outside, hot steamy and soft inside. It was quite addicting, a box filled with 6 balls for only IDR 29.000, pretty affordable. Hard to forget and every bite was absolutely worth, creamy batter was none like any other places. Let me repeat, creamy on the inside. The thing is the creamy texture that creates a unique sensation, melt in mouth!

Here there are only few on the menu, focusing on takoyaki with few sauce variations such ketchup and spicy mayo. With only two basic menu, takoyaki and snow ice. Ordered matcha snow ice turned out just ok, because they used matcha that one I avoid the most though the shaved ice was very soft, combined with sweet red bean paste and glutinous rice balls. Well, hope they will improve the matcha flavor like the "real" matcha, meanwhile next time I know I will sit and relish mango snow ice.

Updated: I've visited this place 5 times, mango snow ice was much better than matcha. Takoyaki  was also as good as my first attempt

  1. This was dinner tonight at our house... I am too tired some days to come up with fantastic or extravagant meal ideas, plus the kids don't eat my best meals anyways. Tonight I wanted them to get some good calories so I added sausage to the recipe. It's delicious and hearty and best of all, it's super easy.
    Geesh, what an ego on this one. Sure hope he and those other Founding Fathers can put in a few clauses about women’s independence in all those documents they’re fighting about because being unable to own property or vote, and precluded by sex from 98 percent of jobs in the Colonies is really slowing down my game. I’d dump this jerk in a heartbeat if I had more options.

  2. Tomorrow, be on the look for our final Dog of the Day post. This last post is going to be a special one. I'll be revisiting current shelter dogs who are looking for forever homes, like I did at the beginning--rather than the success stories I've done the past few days--and featuring one dog who is having some medical issues and needs help from the loving humans in his life.
