I’ve mentioned before that I have a love-hate relationship with “takoyaki” or “octopus balls”. You know, the ball-shaped Japanese snack usually filled with minced or diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and green onion cooked in a special moulded pan.
The reason behind that love-hate relationship is how the takoyaki I have had in the past tasted and made. If you love this Japanese snack, don’t worry because I am beginning to love and enjoy it. All thanks to the latest brand discovery.
They are called Ohhhmy Takoyaki, and they offer delightful takoyaki. You might be wondering why the name Ohhhmy Takoyaki. Listen to the recording in the video. “Umaii” in Japanese means wow delicious an expression which resembles the well-known English version oh my!
Truthfully their takoyaki offerings stay true to the brand. They did not skimp on flavour; not to mention, each takoyaki is well-made holding their shape. Would you like a closer look?
They currently have three oh so delicious flavours – Ohhhmy Chizu, Ohhhmy Kani and Ohhhmy Tako.
Let’s start with their best seller. The Ohhhmy Chizu is a fusion of triple cheese melts with veggies dressed generously with their special Takoyaki sauce and cheese sauce layered with Japanese mayo with a dash of togarashi topped with special Cherella slices, torched and then sprinkled with a-o-nori.
Second is the Ohhhmy Kani, perfect for crab lovers. This takoyaki is made with a large chunk of Kani bound with veggies, sprinkled with aonori and generous amount of their special takoyaki sauce layered with Japanese Mayo and a dash of togarashi topped with Katsuobushi flakes.
Last is the Ohhhmy Tako. Their traditional takoyaki is made with a huge chunk of Octobits, bound with veggies, sprinkled with aonori and a generous amount of their special takoyaki sauce layered with Japanese Mayo plus a dash of togarashi and topped with Katsuobushi flakes.
Now which one is my favourite? Honestly, I love them all. But if I were to introduce this to first-time takoyaki eaters, the Ohhhmy Chizu is a great recommendation. This flavour is familiar but at the same time gives the consumer a unique and delightful experience.
