This Ain’t No Fear Factor

I have a bone to pick with people who think Takoyaki, or octopus balls, are made out of octopus testicles and brag about eating them as if they were a contestant on The Fear Factor.  The octopus ball got the name from its round shape, not from the ingredients.  In fact, there’s nothing suspicious inside the Ebelskiver-shaped goodness – just a good old flour, eggs, dashi, chopped scallions, red ginger, and yes, octopus pieces. So, please don’t pretend that you triumphed on The Fear Factor, Man vs. Wild, or any other TV shows that make you eat some weird bizarre sh#@.

These delicious dishes are from a little shop inside Torrance Mistuwa Marketplace food court.  Sorry, I forgot the name of the place.

That is all.
