taiyaki Taiyaki is a fish-shaped Japanese pancake stuffed with sweet red bean paste.
Taiyaki is made using fish-shaped mold.
Main ingredient of batter is wheat flour.

cut taiyaki Nowadays, there are some taiyaki filled with custard, chocolate, or other ingredient instead of red bean paste.

By the way, "Tai" means sea bream.
Sea bream is a high quality cooking ingredient for Japanese dishes.
I supose it is why they made sea bream-shaped pancake.

There was a little card in front of our train station that sold this, and on winter evenings, a lot of grown men rushing home would stop and buy one or two. My dad and I, we bought five for each member of the family, or sometimes six so little brother, who LOVED these, could have two. Good old days...
