Near the main street (Chuo-dori Street (中央通り)) of Akihabara (秋葉原), a taiyaki chain shop called "Naruto-Taiyaki-Honpo (鳴門鯛焼本舗)" has been opened recently. Taiyaki is a popular local waffle containing bean jam. The shape is "tai", porgy which Japanese loves and believes it brings lack. Generally, taiyaki shops look to street and people eat while walking or bring to home as small souvenir.
Taiyaki of "Naruto-Taiyaki-Honpo" is made by hand one by one despite it is a big chain. Burnt aroma was favorable and crispy waffle was good for the chain (as the taste of dough of famous shops is much better). Sweetness of bean jam was well balanced (if it is too sweet, not good). They also offer taiyaki containing sweet potato paste. It was mild and also tasty, but I prefer usual one. One piece is JPY140. My rating is 2.8 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
