Lonely Planet review for Taco Tora
Try this spot for Kyoto’s best tako yaki (fried, battered octopus balls – no, not those balls). The place doesn’t have much in the way of ambience, but, then, what tako yaki place does? Be careful: the balls are served piping hot and you can easily burn your mouth if you’re not patient. It’s near Kitano Tenman-gū.
