Lunch with agile marketer Tangyslice and his buddy @JonBornstein at the Porter Exchange. If you haven’t been to the Porter Exchange, you’re missing out. It’s an old art deco Sears turned into a mall with a corridor of very authentic little Japanese restaurants inside. We chose Ittyo more or less at random.
Six for $5? How could we go wrong? I hadn’t had takoyaki in a long time.
As promised, piping hot, crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside and crunchy inside that. The octopus chunks were a pleasing shade of purple. For the main, I had saba donburi, and the guys chose nabeyaki udon.
