Taiyaki is a Japanese fish-shaped pancake, often filled with sweetened red bean paste. They are a popular sweet shop or food court food in Japan, and you can make them at home using a few readily available ingredients.
While there are special batter mixes you can make, I’ve found that you can also simply use ready-made waffle mix. I used Bob’s Red Mill. As for the bean paste, you can also make your own, but I used a canned version of tsubushi-an.
You may be able to find it in your local Asian grocery. You’ll also need a special taiyaki pan. - text from the blog
I’ve seen these stuffed with custards and ice cream (and I think savory food too?)… I’ll be re-blogging some of those pictures so you guys can see.
For those of you who are not a bunch of ignorants like me, please share more info about this dessert with us below on the text. I like to learn new things! :D I’m sure some of my followers are also curious too, please share on this post below in the text! Thanks in advance for sharing what you know! :) xx

Through thick and thin, my satchel has accompanied me through medical school. Initially, it strictly carried books and papers; now it is a repurposed bag for a clinical life.
I talked briefly about what I usually carry with me in my first clinical pearl post. In response to Wayfaring MD’s post, I thought I would share what I actually bring with me. These are my standard issue items, with room for switching or adding more items as needed:
Pocket evaluation forms: For clinical skills and procedures.
Pocket Medicine: A compact book for diagnostics, investigations and laboratory values.
Two clipboards: The first contains regular paper for note taking including pre-printed progress notes and other chart-related forms; the second contains preceptor documentations including more formal evaluation sheets, outcomes checklists as well as my weekly schedule.
The notepad: Where I write and gather my patient information and keep the to-do list for the patients I am responsible for.
Moleskin notebook: Where I keep rotation specific clinical pearls and other tips and tricks.
Two pens: Always keep a back up pen. Always.
Pen light: For the quick neurological screen.
Three packs of lubricating jelly: Need to do a digital rectal exam or a bimanual exam? Gloves are everywhere but these are not.
Access codes and contact list
Two granola bars
Pager: How I wish this could not be standard issue.
Stethoscope: If I am not walking around with it around my neck, it goes back into the bag until its next calling.
Other items that I will sometimes include are rotation specific pocketbooks, headphones, and my phone charger to name a few.
