ATLANTA, GA - The taste of Japanese food is like no other. The combination of sweet, savory, and sometimes even sour on top of uniquely textured food leaves you craving for more.

Takoyaki is one of the most popular Japanese hot snacks. It’s made of pieces of octopus mixed in a batter that can be customized with green onions, red ginger, cheese, and many more ingredients. Though octopus is the traditional main ingredient, many takoyaki has also been customized using other ingredients such as sausages, imitation crab, or cheese. If you’re looking for some of the best takoyaki in Atlanta, here are three places you can consider.

Ginya Izakaya is known for serving one of the most authentic and largest takoyaki in Atlanta. They would fill each takoyaki ball with a generous amount of octopus to keep you satiated. You can even ask for extra takoyaki sauce on the side if you want to dip them by yourself.
