Oden was one of my favorite late night snacks in Japan.
We usually get the oden at the convenience stores. There were times when we saw tiny little traditional oden shops where offwork salarymen eat oden, drink, talk, and laugh. I've never tried oden in these places. I wonder the oden would taste completely different than the convenience store kind?
Maybe next time we are in Japan we'd try one of the tiny little oden shops.
