Trying to find a Japanese Restaurant with Oyster Motoyaki (Baked Oyster with Mayonnaise).

    While we're at it, as the request is similar, does anyone know where to find a restaurant that does takoyaki and a place where I can find a pan to make some?

        They are octopus balls. I googled these tasty looking pictures; I don't know who took them, but I bless him. http://www.flickr.com/photos/barron/s...

          Yes, I see it! Did you see the "toys" section, with the Hello Kitty? It's a takoyaki Kitty, with an octopus!!

          I've had takoyaki in HongKong before! It was very yummy, with bits of octopus. MmmMMmmm..

            Hehe. No, I didn't see the takoyaki but I had a look when you mentioned it. Hilarious and cute! (And I wish I tried takoyaki in Hong Kong before too.) :)

        There is a Japanese restaurant in the foodcourt of TNT at Middlefield & Steeles that serves takoyaki. They make it fresh as you order it. Very delicious!

          You can try Kenzo Ramen on Yonge, south of Steeles. I've tried their takoyaki with octopus last time I went there with my boyfriend. The tasted was good and quite authentic, although not cheap. ($8 for 6 balls). I also liked their ramen.

            There's a stand inside the food court of First Markham Place that caters to them as a specialty. First Markham Place is located at Hwy 7 & b/w Woodbine and Warden - same mall as Home Outfitters and Golf Town.

            I believed this place inside the food court used to be there, but now it is gone.

              Thanks guys! This is really great! I am very happy, but I feel guilty because now I see how much I've hijacked the original thread's topic with my question.

              So, uh, will we also find oyster motoyaki near the places we find the takoyaki?

                I don't know if Kenzo has oyster motoyaki now, would like to know too.

                So far I would only make motoyaki myself (with mussels instead). They are equally tasty!
