Japan Boat Takoyaki!!!!

This is the most happening thing in KK rite now. Japan Boat Takoyaki!!!

Location: Ground Floor, Wisma Merdeka (near cimb atm, this place was the old Saint Cinnamon lot).

I first heard about it last Friday (12th Dec 2008). Clay (check his post, here) works around there and he is our test subject. These "sotong" balls (apa ni, don't otak kuning bah u guys) "takoyaki" are sold at RM2.80 per 3 piece. The only problem you'll be facing is


Depends on traffic, sometimes you have to queue for half an hour.

Not only the queue is long, the place also have a long list of staff working on the takoyaki.

There's more than this actually. Oh this is when they're cleaning it up (sucking all the excessive oil).

The process of making (so I saw tako, cabbage and some chili powder being put in).

neato boat box

this is it!

Anyways, check at ravejoint for my review, here. Other reviews, here. Thanks.

Shots of us. XD

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Some might like it. Some might not.

    ok, here is the truth.

    it only takes 15 minutes actually.
    But due to customer yg suka main order order nanti baru balik ambil, their order need to prepare first. Sekarang pun cashier dorg pun pandai urus which order need to be complete first.

    I hate customer yg main order nanti baru ambil. dorang fikir dorang ja ka yang mau makan. baris la ba. sama2 tunggu dengan customer yg berbaris dgn setia. jgn perasan kalo duit byk. i hate ppl show off their money. itu duit pun main buang on top of the counter ja. no ethic as a customer.

    lagi satu, sometimes customers asked for more the fish flakes yg kamu pikir macam kayu tu. itu ingredients bukan semuanya beli d kk. order dari luar malaysia bah tu. kalau mau minta extra fish flakes, rugi la kedai tu. sa dgr2 1 bags of the fish flakes cost RM60. kalau habis dlm 1 jam, how many money the shop rugi?? Bagus dorang jual RM3.00 terus. Ngam jugak kalau mau byk kan.I know, kamu bukan peduli pun kedai tu sbb kamu mau makan ja. Just dont make so much demand. It's so annoying everytime i go and buy takoyaki.

    makan tu makan jugak, tapi sederhana la~~

    sama sama untung la bah.

  24. @Anonymous: wui, sabar ging. I think their case, they buy for everyone and can't queue like us bah.
