Maiko’s favorite tako-yaki born in Gion
Hidetako satisfies peoples’ empty stomachs in Gion with their succulent tako-yaki. People working in Gion purchase a selection of their tako-yaki before going work while others take them home as a small souvenir after enjoying drinking in the area. “Tako-yaki” (8 pieces, 600 yen) is the most popular. A crispy ball-shaped dumpling contains a large piece of octopus inside. The secret of the crispy texture is that they grill the pieces of cooked tako-yaki once more just before serving them to the customer. Typical tako-yaki is enjoyed with a thick sauce but Hidetako presents other unique flavors like soy sauce, curry, Kyoto-style dengaku miso (bean paste), pizza sauce, salt, etc. If you would like to try the simplest taste amongst their selection, try “Su-yaki” that is served ‘as it is’ without any sauce.
