Samurai Balls! (Robinson's Pioneer, Boni. August 2011)

4 small pcs at 32 Php.

Samurai has served my favorite takoyaki since I was a kid. I remember how my mom used to always get me these when we were on the mall. Eating takoyaki is one of my happy memories from my childhood. Imagine my delight when I saw the little kiosk hidden under the stairs just near the entrance of Robinson's Pioneer mall.

The lady on the counter was feisty and forbade me to take photos, but I already had what I needed. Doesn't she know letting people take photos is free advertising? I guess it's one of the reasons why Samurai doesn't have so many branches in the malls these days.

My name is Rachelle, I am working at Singapore.
We are currently giving away a free Webpage in PH (particularly for Restaurants/food chains).
May I ask permission to use your photos? Your blog's URL
will appear on the photo with clickable link back to your blog.

We are going to get photos of the restaurant/establishment that are in your blogs.
For instance, Gerry's grill is in your blog, then we will use Gerry's grill's photos to upload in Gerry's grill free webpage.
Mostly food photos. Interior and exterior of the restaurant are also fine if available. And again your URL will appear on it.

I hope to get a reply from you soon.

Many thanks!

Rachelle (webpage team)

Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.

i love these samurai balls...i really don't understand why establishments don't want photos taken of their products, its not like you're stalling their recipe!
...oh well!

It looks yummy! Well, I know a lot of food kiosks doesn't allow pictures and I am not getting their point either! It is free advertising!

I think the main reason she doesn't like her photo taken is that she doesn't creative entrepreneurs to come along and copy or innovate her system. There will always be new players in the takoyaki market that will want to know what the successful competition is doing.

She sure didn't like having her picture taken, did she? I think the main reason food cart operators discourage picture-taking is to try to thwart competition from gaining proprietary information about the operation (and either duplicate it or innovate it). Still, she can't stop creative entrepreneurs from conducting stealth research. It's just the nature of a free market. PS: I love takoyaki. My wife makes it for me often...
