I’ve tried Okonomiyaki before back in Osaka Japan. And as far as I could remember, it’s packed with seafood meat wrapped in what it looks like a pancake. Smothered with sauce on top and I can’t even finish the whole serving. And so again, we tried the Okonomiyaki experience here in Manila. Dohtonbori has branched out to many locations around Manila. And we tried their branch in Greenhills, San Juan. Located in Missouri street, just at the back of Greenhills mall.
We’re welcomed by this huge tanuki if I’m not mistaken haha. Dohtonbori design resembles those restaurants in Japan. Cute interiors are all over the place and even the setup of tables and chair makes you feel like you’re in Japan. In general, most of the restos I’ve been to Japan are a bit dim and so is here. Impressive.
What catches my eye the most is this cat. At first, I really thought it was real because it seems to be breathing. But voila, it’s not hahaha!
So let’s jump to what we’ve tried on – Okonomiyaki of course. We had the 3 meat Okonomiyaki. It’s a combination of beef, pork, and chicken which costs P330. Totally good for 2-3 persons. If you know to cook Okonomiyaki you can go ahead and cook one. But since we’re not an expert, we had the staff cooked it for us 🙂 AAAAAND it is good! I must say this is better than what I had in Japan hahaha!
Watch the process of how it is cooked. I like the part where they splattered the mayonnaise on top.
We also tried some pork wrapped in egg, a couple of veggies and flour (unfortunately I forgot the name :/) Photo below is just half of its serving. Good for sharing for 2 persons.
Indeed a very burp-y experience – all carbs, haha! If you want spend your weekend for an Okonomiyaki experience, better try Dohtonbori. You’ll surely enjoy your lamon 🙂
