Taiyaki shop established in 1916. I have passed by many times and not for a single time a long queue didn’t form there(even in pouring rain). Only twice I managed to muster up enough patience to wait but unfortunately I was disappointed both times. The crust was not crispy and half(2 out of 4) of the taiyaki I got were kinda lopsided, with too much flour lumped to one side. I think I prefer “Nezu no Taiyaki” for crispy crust and “Naniwaya” for nice charcoal smell(see tags for related posts).

I wish I was living in Japan and you are my best friend. Then I will get to tag along with you to all these good eats! I’ve been visiting your site for the past 6 months, and I have to say, I envy you!
Hi Kitty, thanks for your comment.
Even in a city like Tokyo, find good food is not that effortless. I wish more foreign residents in Tokyo would blog about their eating experience.
Oh that’s a fish with chipped edges…maybe you didn’t get a fresh piece hence the crust isn’t crispy?
Oh because there is always a queue, you ALWAYS get freshly grilled ones. I always buy two, eat one right on the spot and save one to reheat later. Even the fresh one is not that crispy!
