About Us

Taiyaki (たい焼き) is a traditional Japanese dessert that resembles Western waffle or pancake. The word "tai" translates to sea bream and "yaki" means baked or grilled. It is claimed to be originated from a small store in Tokyo in 1909. Taiyaki is now widely sold worldwide becoming many people's comforting food that helps to get through a cold, brutal winter. The traditional taiyaki is filled with sweetened red bean (azuki アズキ) paste. Today, taiyaki comes in various batter, flavours and fillings that is catered to everyone's taste.
