The khooni Monday is here, but it comes with a new Twitter obsession. Tweeple woke up to a new food trend on their timelines. Taiyaki, a Japanese fish-shaped cake which is usually made with a sweet red bean paste filling, is getting a lot of attention as people are using custard, chocolate, cheese, sweet potato and ice cream to stuff it. 

We even spotted a bacon and egg Taiyaki, so you know the hunger is real for this one. The very photogenic Taiyaki has also inspired fish-shaped ice cream cones. 

Taiyaki is not just ruling Instagram but people are also sharing their unique Taiyaki stuffing ideas. Have a look.
