Takoyaki at Farmer’s Market

Takoyaki Vendor at Farmer's Market

Yay! Found some great takoyaki at the farmer’s market today. First time seeing this vendor here. Really nice guy! After chatting a bit, we found out they are associated with Miyo’s (not sure how, though).

We went early, so they just got setup and it was still hot and fresh and so moist. Very tasty!

They also had some taiyaki (Japanese pancakes) filled with sweet red beans, cheese, or cinnamon apple. We got two red bean pancakes. They were so good too! Still warm and toasty.

Come early because they seemed very popular! I hope this vendor stays here for awhile.

P.S. Stay posted… Bev and I just celebrated our 2 year anniversary and went to Fujimamas. :) Man, that was one of the best meals ever! I’ll post again within a week.

    I never knew what takoyaki was until I saw it on Anthony Bourdain’s show. Then I was at Shirokiya the other week and saw a new vendor there that serves takoyaki. Didn’t try it but plan to go back sometime soon.

    Yum…how early did you go? By the way, happy anniversary!

    James,

    I love takoyaki. I only get to eat it when the vendor visits Shirokiya though….Which means that it is not too often.

    Glad you had a great time at Fujimama’s. I tried to find the shop in Tokyo when I was there and found that I had ventured in the wrong direction by about a 100 yards.

    Congrats to you and Bev!

    Congratulations on your Anniversary!

    I’m also a fan of the Shirokiya takoyaki and am so glad they have a permanent stall now. Taiyaki I don’t get to have as often but I love it when I do find it. Great additions to the Hilo Farmer’s Market!

    thanks guys! :)

    reid, yeah actually this is the first time i had takoyaki, so i was super excited! i was going to get some from shirokiya, but they closed before i got there.

    hattie, welcome to my blog!

    Lori, wooohoo, so they have a permanent stand now? I will have to check it out next time I’m on Oahu.

    i love takoyaki! i think it’s awesome they serve it with mayonaisse

    That looks delicious. They have the taiyaki at Miyo’s too. I had the red bean one. The red bean is sweet but a little to much breading for my liking. Still, it won’t stop me from eating it., because it is good. =)

    Looks like we’ll have to make a special stop to the Farmer’s Market just for this guy.

    Shoots, every time I go into Shirokiya Ala Moana (at night), the Takoyaki vendor is already closed. I need to get out there on the weekend soon and try some of these Takoyaki things. Sounds interesting.

    Marukai sells a Takoyaki kit that includes the special iron with the half-spere shapes in it, which you heat up on your stove top. But nah, I’d rather just buy it from a vendor.

    I readed some where you can make taiyaki with tuna salad instead of red bean filling. Now I got two kind to enjoy at home. Planning to try with apple pie filling and cheese in it also with other like jam perserves and bit of choclates too.

    I bought at Hilo market on Saturday. It’s very tastey and the vendor is so sweet. Tried everything he had and will buy again. yum.

  13. Wicked Says:

    I’ve had takoyaki and taiyaki before so I knew what he was selling when I saw this guy, but for most locals unfamiliar with this stuff, it can look gross. Many people just looked at it and walked by. Especially the taiyaki–makes you think that it has fish in it, but no it doesn’t! It would take some special kind of marketing to really introduce these two items to locals.
