Here's a little tip: In Japan, taiyaki is a "winter food" and is not offered in the summer. I've had anpan and anman in its stead, but they lack a certain something, I'm sure.

それで、たいやきを作ろう! I have no idea how, but I remember seeing English instructions somewhere online, once.

Wouldn't you need a taiyaki iron to get one in the shape of a fish? I think my friend once just made some by using pancake mix and some red bean paste :D

I had taiyaki two weeks ago at San Francisco's Japantown, despite it not being winter. :3

I guess it's only truly seasonal in Japan, huh?

I've challenged using a milk carton instead of a iron mold. (http://f17.aaa.livedoor.jp/~kemono/taiyaki/taiyaki.html)
It's difficult to beat professional technique. I couldn't evenly bake in a thin, small frying-pan.

Here ya go...

*for home use : about $20?

*for professional use: up to $1500

Make 20 of them at a time! Wow!
That should make any girl (or a guy) full.

But they might not sell overseas...

And maybe this is the page Shii mentioned:

Hmm, but no instructions on how to fill it with chocolate...

I also feel that something is wrong. Gao.

edit You know how much money someone can possibly make by introducing stegoyaki molds to the fanboys? :D I'd buy one!

Now if only there were a Proton-kun mold...

I can't say I've had the pleasure of fresh taiyaki, but the local asian market does sell frozen packages of two. They cook up nicely inside of a toaster oven - a few minutes on each side ensures the outside is nice and crisp and the inside isn't still frozen. I think I've still got a package in my freezer for when the cold weather rolls around again...

Meanwhile, the Japanese market 'round these parts sells them in packs of five. :3 Yummy!

That stego taiyaki is great!
But you guys are lucky... We don't even know what an Asian Market IS where I come from. Wish I could try some.

However! This is not a nikuman! ... and being the makoto-loving person I am, I feel thats what I should try first, if i ever get the chance...

Make a taiyaki in the shape of a nikuman. Hit two girls with one snack. :D

A taiyaki in the shape of a nikuman? A taiyaki is a taiyaki because it is fish-shaped. Make a nikuman in the shape of a taiyaki, maybe. (Nikuman are meat-filled, taiyaki normally aren't)

you can get nikumans with pizza filling

aren't they usually called pizza pockets?

as for the nikuman and taiyaki combination, can always have taiyaki in the shape of a nikuman with a print of a fish on the top :P

But that would be very hard to market on this side of the Pacific...

Who the heck would want to eat a pizzaman?

Spiritsnare

When I hear Pizzaman, I think a badly spoofed version of Superman, 'cept with a pizza thing for his logo. Or at least a P.

edit The site hir linked to earlier also had miniyaki molds. (http://homepage3.nifty.com/~yamashita/event/minitai.html)

any one have the recipe for this?! if so, feel free to post it with advance thanks

also... at what stage do you add the filling/stuffing?!!! all anime's show that there is some sort of a filling/stuffing, by the images doesn't show such a thing!!!!!

P.S. again, am just an idot, so if the recipe is complicated then feel free to ignore this post (whoever you are).
