Taiyaki (taiyaki - たい焼き)

Taiyaki is a small cake stuffed usually with sweet red bean paste but other fillings like vanilla cream or chocolate are possible. It is cooked like a waffle in a fish shape mold. Taiyaki is very close to the ningyo-yaki which is molded in various shapes including faces and famous characters.
