65.12 Love Balls

Cake balls seem to be the latest craze, but these inventive balls of goodness have completely revolutionized the way I see Japanese street food. Love balls are fried pancake balls filled with octopus, pickled ginger, green onions, and then topped with takoyaki sauce, kepie may and more. The result is delicious and unlike anything you’ve ever had.

The “Takoyaki” was recommended as the crowd favorite so I went with the majority vote. They were fabulous. The only downside to my entire experience was that I wanted more.

I was blown away by this place, and for something with a chunk of octopus in it from a trailer, that’s not what I was expecting. This was definitely a pleasant surprise.

I am a realtor here in Austin, and clients are always asking for suggestions on what to do around town. So, I thought I would blog about my experiences, recommendations and what you have to do before you can call yourself a true Austinite.
