The chocolate fish waffles of Japantown
“Chocolate fish waffles?” you ask.
“Hell yeah. Chocolate fish waffles. Waffles, in the shape of fish, filled with warm dark chocolate, red bean paste, or a chocolate-banana pleasure-coma-inducing mixture.” I say, making fish gestures in the air with my hands and then biting my fingers when my hand swims too close to my mouth. “They are delicious, and totally cheap. Perfect for sneaking into the Kabuki theater.”
You nod and make fishy swimming gestures with your hands, too, this has become our secret code of awesomeness. “That sounds tasty. Where can I buy these so-called chocolate fish waffle taiyaki things?”
“Hmm,” I say frowning. “It’s hard to explain. It’s in the Japantown mall, in the second building on the second floor. It’s located next to a crepe place, and kind of tucked around in a corner. It’s across from a cellphone doodad store.”
“Did you just say ‘doodad’?” You ask.
“Ignore it and move on.”
“I still don’t really understand where this place is. Should I just click that Yelp link above?”
I nod and wish you luck in your hunt for the elusive chocolate fish waffle and his cousin, the red bean paste fish waffle.
