This tasty snack originates from Osaka, the dumplings themselves are made from a dashi stock batter and are traditionally filled with green onions, bonito flakes, tempura scraps, pickled ginger and of course, diced Octopus!
Takoyaki are made in a special pan full of half spheres, once cooked they're brushed with takoyaki sauce, drizzled with mayo, topped with bonito flakes and then sprinkled with aori (I've used glitter to replicate the aori flakes on this brooch!)
This Brooch features a serving of 8 dumplings served in a bamboo boat.

Brooches don’t like to be put through the wash. In fact, keep them away from water.
The acrylic pieces can over time get scratches on the surface. If stored correctly, this will not be a problem. Keep them out of direct sunlight and indoor lighting.
