Tenku Bakudanyaki

Anybody try this place? I noticed while driving yesterday...it's a little booth in an empty parking lot on Gilbert road just north of Westminster Highway in Richmond.

i tried the original like a few weeks back. its basically a giant takoyaki the size of a baseball. it was pretty good but its a bit pricey at $5. the little takeout box thing with the chopsticks and napkin are pretty cool though.

Okay, I tried it today. I got the original and chili mayo, they were sold out of the curry. It's okay...nothing special. Worth trying once, but probably not a repeat for me. I prefer Japadog They're open 11:30-9:30 every day, but sign says they will close early if sold out. It was quite busy today, and most of the customers were Japanese, so I guess that's a good sign?

I'll post pics tomorrow, too lazy to upload the pictures from my camera

It smells really good and tastes good too, but I definitely didn't want more than one.

Haven't tried it. But it definitely looks good

Any idea why they chose that location? Wouldn't they want to be in the downtown core closer to where all the international students hang out?

i've had the mustard and mayo! awesome!
original! tastes great as well. authentic japanese!
the reason why they close early or whatever sometimes is because they're sold out. no point staying opened if they're sold out right?!
but that place is damn goood!

i like their location too! convenient, with parking especially. if they were to choose DT, they would probably get more business but so inconvient for those of us who live further away from DT and have to drive, but obtain shit parking (or expensive parking)!

i really liked it. it was a sunny day and it was great to have them there. I really enjoyed it.

we are not talking abotu a small squid, it was a huge slice of baby squid, one whole octopus, shrimp, and other stuff.

i gotta say, he's very good with everything. down to the napkin and he chopsticks as someone mentioned. very very japanese style, attention to detail down to presentation.

Went there today, had the special, not too bad, but smaller and more expensive than ones I had in Tokyo. Their name is similar to the one I tried in Japan, so I asked the staff there if they're related to the Bakudanyaki franchise in Japan. He said yes, but I'm skeptical. Their name, logo and menu aren't even the same and this Richmond location is not listed in the Japan site (http://www.bakudanyakihonpo.co.jp/shop.html). Asked the guy why the menu is different, and he blew me off by saying ingredients here are more expensive. Probably another case of "knock offs" but at least their takoyaki tasted pretty good, just not as good as the real deal in Japan.

I've just had this in Japan, however I thought it was quite gross =/ I had the original flavor, and there was a lack of tako in it... I think there was like 2 pieces in total. Basically I was eating a huge ball of the paste =/ It was very filling, however i'd perfer the smaller takoyakis

oh yeah kinda off topic, but if you're wondering...

Bakudan means "Bomb" in Japanese
Yaki means "cooked/burnt" in Japanese
Tenku means "supernal" in Japanese

so.. Tenku Bakudanyaki means...

Supernal Cooked Bomb

Tried these in Japan, very disappointing. Regular little tako yaki are much better than the "bomb" ones.
