    Oh my gosh!!!! I was thinking about this place a few months ago and tried to inquire if they were still here at the FM in Mira Mesa. Were they called Okada-Ya Takoyaki? I loved their takoyaki (especially the octopus and cheese – they sold me 3 and 3 so I could try em out). Thank you for posting this b/c I will so be there next Tues (time willing) to see them. I hope you do a post about the Mira Mesa FM too – it’s been ages since I’ve visited their FM.

      Hi Faye – The name was only in Japanese so I don’t know what their actual name is :/ oh well! Maybe it’s still early in the year because a lot of stalls seemed to be missing. I also spied some arepas which are a Venezuelan treat I also want to try. I think next week I’ll try and arepa and an egg waffle! Maybe I’ll see you there!

    I’m going to the Santee Farmers Market now, and hope that some new vendors have shown up. Haven’t been there all year. If there is nothing interesting, I’ll be in Mira Mesa next Tuesday.

      Hi Cathy – I’ve never been to the Santee FM. I imagine a lot of the same folks travel around to the different FM, though some are bigger than others. Maybe it’s still early in the year for some of the vendors. Hoping to see more stalls at Mira Mesa, soon.

  3. I like the bonita flakes on top of takoyaki! I like how they “quiver” like they’re alive, haha! I’m not too fond of steamed buns, unless the ratio of meat to bun is larger. I don’t like the doughy-ness of the bun.
