It was the first time I tried Taiyaki, the Japanese fish shaped hot cakes which involve no real fish in any of the steps. They sold them at a stand in the food area in the underground floor in Q’s mall in Abeno.
(I noticed that most Japanese malls have something food related in their basement.)
The traditional ones have sweet bean paste in them, but there weren’t any when I went so I picked a custard one.
Update: I managed to get a taiyaki with the original filling, it still looks the same on the outside, but the filling is different.
