Traditional Japanese Cuisine is also a hit among Filipinos especially this ball shaped snack called Takoyaki balls which literally means “fried octopus balls”. It is a much-loved snack treat for it is a savory dumpling perfectly grilled in a special takoyaki pan. This traditional takoyaki balls are made up of flavoursome ingredients that includes diced baby octopus, some vegetables (mainly carrots and cabbage) with little tempura crumbs and green onions.

Consequently, if you decide to engage in a food cart franchise, the takoyaki concept is a relatively interesting product to offer in the market.
TK Takoyaki was established in August of 1998 with its founders – Maritess G. Villaflor, her husband Antonio together with their eldest son Mark Anthony. Their first store was located at Odeon Mall in Recto, Manila. Their original concept was to serve freshly cooked takoyaki to its target customers. As their business progressed, they infused other snack treats such as siomai, fried squids (calamares), beefy-yaki into their innovative product lines. They also continue to develop and improve the recipe of their takoyaki balls to adjust to the Filipino taste buds and indeed they were successful in doing this. The inclusion of the sweet and sour sauces is the secret in creating their takoyaki more Filipino. Thus it can now be called as the Philippine takoyaki version.
