tako - This literally translates to octopus.
yaki - This can mean grilled, fried, rosted, baked, or otherwise fire-cooked.
2. When their magic powers combine, tako + yaki form takoyaki! A tasty dumpling ball made mainly of octopus and batter fried together. It also contains a bunch of other ingredients and sauces that I can't remember now.

Justin: I want some nekoyaki then. :0~
Kikkoman: I taste like crap, fermented crap, fermented dog crap of soybeans that was rectally injected into a pig and later regurgitated into plastic bottles for consumer use. (. .;
