One of the long-standing Okonomiyaki restaurants from Osaka, Japan, Botejyu opened its 30th branch in the Philippines at SM City Tarlac.
Located at the Upper Ground Floor of the mall, Botejyu prides itself as home of authentic traditional Japanese cuisine that serves its famous okosoba and best-selling okonomiyaki. Its Asian interiors – a combination of wood, metal, and warm lights – also gives us a glimpse and experience of Japan.
Botejyu’s golden rule for each okonomiyaki is to be “crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside”. This batter is made by mixing carefully ground premium flour with natural broth – squid, shrimp, bonito and kelp – producing an aromatic, crispy, and unique flavor of Botejyu okonomiyaki.
Botejyu was established in 1946 in the gourmet city of Tamade, Osaka. Botejyu was coined from words “BOTE” means the flipping sound of the okonomiyaki and “JYU” represents the sizzling sound as it cooks on the teppan grill. Botejyu has taken pride in its restaurant name and protected it by registering it as a trademark.
