First taste of okonomiyaki at Dohtonbori Philippines

I love Japanese food and I will never tire of my sushi, ramen, and takoyaki. When Dohtonbori Philippines opened its second branch in SM North Edsa, I got curious with their okonomiyaki. We decided to give it a try one weekend at their SM North Edsa branch, luckily, we arrived early just before people started to line up in time for lunch.

We were seated at this enclosed area but there is also room where you would sit on the floor tatami style. I think this is cool for a real Japanese experience.

The interiors scream Japanese, I love these fun masks, unfortunately, they are not for sale.

Most of the items on the menu will be cooked in front of you, there’s a grill in every table.

The condiments are placed in every table, there’s the okonomiyaki sauce, bonito powder, seaweed flakes, oil, vinegar, soy sauce, chili, etc. I prefer restaurants that are generous with their condiments.

Now, for the okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is a Japanese pancake or omellette. “Okonomi” means what you like, and “yaki” means grilled. It’s basically a batter made with flour and eggs filled different ingredients such as chicken, pork, beef, cheese, fish, etc.

Dohtonbori Philippines has 16 kinds of okonomiyaki, and being an okononiyaki noob, I asked the staff of her recommendation so she told me to try the Deluxe Okonomiyaki.

Deluxe okonomiyaki has everything on it, chicken, beef, pork, scallops, and octopus. They will bring this bowl with raw ingredients, you have the option to cook it yourself or ask them to cook it for you. I asked the staff to cook it for us so that I can take a video on how it is cooked. Watch it below or watch in YouTube.

Finally, our deluxe okonomiyaki! Looks yum! This is good for 2 to 3 persons.

We also got a bowl of Gyudon. We’ve had better gyudon in other places though.

I like their iced tea, not the powdered sugary kind.

We loved our #OkonomiyakiExperience at Dohtonbori and we’ll surely be back to try their other types of okonomiyaki.

  7. Looks delicious! I would definitely eat that but I would prefer a seafood variation since I don’t eat meat. I do like the combination of all those flavours.
