They are cooked on a special grill and served hot, drizzled with mayonnaise and savory sauce. Takoyaki are a beloved street food in Japan and are a must-try for anyone visiting the country.
Mochi is a sweet snack made from glutinous rice that has been pounded into a sticky paste. It can be filled with sweet bean paste, strawberries, or ice cream, and is often served during special occasions like New Year’s celebrations. Mochi has a unique chewy texture that is both satisfying and delicious.
