Chinatown lands a new Japanese street food restaurant with the opening of Takopa from Go Hoashi, the owner of Izakaya Go and Pokeman.

The restaurant marks the first traditional takoyaki restaurant in Las Vegas with a menu of octopus balls, which Hoashi calls a “common food in Japan,” in original, spicy, with a spicy cod roe, or with green onions and homemade dashi sauce for less than $10. Diners can order a four- or 16-piece sampler.

Okonomiyaki, a Japanese pancake, comes with pork, squid, shrimp, and more for $7.95. Yakisoba stir-fried noodles in pork, chicken, seafood, or vegetable; ramen noodles; and other small tapas dishes including edamame, tako wasabi, pickled cucumber, kimchi, corn butter, karaage, kurobuta sausage, and more round out the menu. Diners can order wasabi mochi or green tea ice cream for dessert.

The restaurant in the Chinatown Plaza at 4215 Spring Mountain Road is open Thursday through Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
