A theme park developer has appointed TV personality Megumi Yasu, 28, its ambassador of "takoyaki," a popular Japanese dumpling made of batter, baby octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger and green onion, topped with okonomiyaki sauce, ponzu, mayonnaise, green laver and bonito shavings.
Yasu attended an event in Odaiba to promote the Takoyaki Museum which opens Saturday. Yasu, known for her love of cooking, tried her hand at making some octopus balls herself after which the gathered press asked her who she would like to have feed them to her. Yasu replied, "Well, since I'm almost 30, so I guess it's about time I found Mr Right."© Japan Today
