This is less of a museum and more of an interactive workshop on one of Osaka's food obsessions. Konamon refers to any food around here that uses flour as a main ingredient. Takoyaki is of course the first thing to come to mind. The museum explores the origins of these foods, invites you to make your own takoyaki and try out the multiple flavours of the dish. There's even a class on how to create wax replicas of food.

  • I don't recommend this place for takoyaki. We got the Museum Set - 800 yen for 8 pieces, 4 in the ham & cheese flavour, 4 original. Both types of takoyaki were undercooked and fell apart when picking it up- a big no-no! On the bright side, the ham & cheese flavour did taste very good.

  • This place is way over hyped. The takoyaki here is pretty bad and pricey. The taste with the sauce is aight but the texture is just terrible.

  • This is the most expensive takoyaki joint at Dotunburi, and depending on who you ask, not necessarily the best, but I nonetheless enjoyed it very much. It has a great atmosphere with the giant octopus and takoyaki song playing in the background (it goes TAAAAKOYAKI, TAKOYAKI, TAKOYAKI). You can also cook (and eat) your own takoyaki downstairs (I think it was 1500yen to make 15 takoyaki), with a variety of filling options. That was quite fun although I was very bad at it 😛 You can also make a wax takoyaki to take home up two levels on level 3, I think this was 2000yen so I didn’t do it.

  • I'm usually not critical of food, but the takoyaki here was pretty bad. Soggy and very salty, might be because they're so many customer so they don't cook them all the way through. Also lady seemed pretty rude as if she's been working all day and night. Not recommended. Go somewhere with consistently good reviews.

  • Travelling to Osaka, we had to try the takoyaki. Fresh batches of takoyaki are constantly cooked at the front of the shop under the big Octupus sign, which isn't hard to miss along Dotonburi. You can order your takoyaki and then take a seat inside. Takoyaki is served piping hot so don't eat too quickly. Our portion was crispy on the outside then gooey & soft inside which paired well with the chewy octopus in the centre. I enjoyed that texture and it tasted great altogether. One portion comes with 8 takoyaki balls, served with the bonita flakes and parsley dust. My friend has a peanut allergy and had no problems or reaction eating this, so at least we know it's peanut free.
