Experience Details
Love the sample foods you see outside of Japanese restaurants? Well, now is your chance to make one for yourself, in an adorable mini version! Making sample food is an important part of culinary culture in Japan. The sample food are made from artificial materials, but looks as delicious as the real deal! These sample foods are displayed outside of restaurants so customers can see what their food will look like before they order. It’s great for advertising, and helpful for places that don’t have photos on their menus. These sample foods look good enough to eat, but a life-size bowl of ramen or plate of takoyaki is not very practical. However, a miniature-sized sample food makes the perfect souvenir to remember your foodie adventures in Japan. In this class, you’ll be instructed step by step how to make a miniature takoyaki, a popular street food from Osaka made of fried balls of battered octopus. This is a beginner-friendly option, but if you are looking for a challenge, select one of the other types of sample foods. Other beginner and family-friendly options include takoyaki, udon noodles, pie, a melon soda float, and okonomiyaki (Japanese savory pancake). Let your host know which sample you'd like to make at the time of booking.
