Is there anybody from Japan that knows the recipe for octopus Balls?

I saw them on NO RESERVATIONS w/ Anthony Bourdain and the local Japanese restarant makes them but they want 7$ for 4 of them and that is too pricy for my budget. I figuer one of those Apple skiver pans would work and they look easy enough to make. Looks like a pancake type batter. Does anybody know what I am talking about????? I am Hungry!
