Japaneese Taiyaki, Fish-Shaped Cake. Singapore Street Food at Takashimaya Food Village



Taiyaki (literally “baked sea bream”) is a Japanese fish-shaped cake.
It imitates the shape of Tai (Japanese Red seabream). It is also the origin of the name.
The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans. Other common fillings may be custard, chocolate, cheese, or sweet potato. Some shops even sell taiyaki with okonomiyaki, gyoza filling, or a sausage inside.
Taiyaki is made using regular pancake or waffle batter. The batter is poured into a fish-shaped mold for each side. The filling is then put on one side and the mold is closed. It is then cooked on both sides until golden brown.
Taiyaki is believed to have originated in Tokyo during the Meiji era, and can now be found all over Japan, especially at food courts of supermarkets and at Japanese festivals.

This Taiyaki shop in Food Village @ Takashimaya Mall in orchard Road uses big cast iron pans to make many taiyaki at the same time.
