Our parents always encouraged my brother and I to try new & different foods. Though my mom and my big bro can't have any raw sushi, cuz it messes with their digestive system. Plus, my brother's diabetic so he can't touch anything raw. If it's cooked sushi, he has no problem.I kind of wish I had taken pictures, on Fri I had spicy black garlic tonkotsu ramen and for the very first time ever, takoyaki. Mostly I ordered it because I was with my parents and knew they wouldn't order anything interesting. I don't get why they aren't more adventurous. They both got a pretty standard pork or chicken rice bowl. I offered them some of the takoyaki, but they wouldn't even try it until I told them exactly what was in it. And of course they noped out when I told them it was octopus.
Then, it turns out I don't like takoyaki either. Not because of the octopus, that was fine. It is the (?batter.) It is cooked and pancake like on the outside, but the inside is very uncooked. Like a pancake that still has batter on the inside. I think I would have liked it if it were a little more "well done."
