BOTEJYU – Japan’s Okonomiyaki Pioneer and Premier Specialty Restaurant

Osaka’s Botejyu was first launched in the Philippines in 2016 and since then, it had captured Filipinos hearts with its signature dishes such as the All-Star Takoyaki, Amiyaki Grilled Pork Donburi, Garlic Chicken Karaage, Japanese Wagyu Rib-Eye Steak, Paitan Ramen with Chicken Tempura and Mentaiko and Potato Mochiyaki. The said Japanese restaurant had enticed several foodies in Manila.

“BOTEJYU – was born in the gourmet city of Tamade, Osaka in 1946 as an okonimayaki specialty restaurant. The restaurant name “Botejyu” originates from the Japanese onomatopoeia of the sound “bote” of the okonomiyaki being flipped and the sizzling sound “jyu” of its cooking on the hot teppan griddle.”

Get ready North people as the 5th branch of Botejyu had been opened at AYALA MALL VERTIS NORTH. 🙂
