www.takoyaki.org, somebody's Japanese travel blog, has links to recipes, 
pans and how-to videos listed along the right-hand side of the screen.  
This is finest kind Osaka street food, I think he will like it.  Maybe I 
should do some Weird Food Science at Potrero.

When I was in college, there was a burger stand in west LA that carried 
American, Mexican and Japanese food, and you could order any of them in 
interesting combinations, including all the Japanese protein sources in 
Mexican dishes.  Yes, you could get a Tako Taco, but they'd make sure 
that's what you really wanted.  I miss Mego's.
