Dinner at Botejyu

tempura at Botejyu

Craving a taste of Japan without leaving the Philippines? Look no further than Botejyu, a beloved Osaka-born chain that brought its signature okonomiyaki and other Japanese delights to Manila’s hungry foodies. We recently had dinner at Botejyu courtesy of my sister who calls herself Anney. And let me tell you, it was a flavor explosion that left me wanting more.

To start off our meal was the California Roll, also known as California Maki, an inside-out sushi roll (uramaki) filled with crabsticks, avocado, cucumber, mango, and tobiko. We also had the Sukiyaki Beef Roll filled with Sukiyaki Beef and lettuce. I love the California Maki because there’s awhole lot of flavors going on but I find the Sukiyaki Beef Roll a bit sweet for my taste.

I love love love the Wakame Salad, though! It’s a cold seaweed salad with a spicy kick. It’s crunchy, savory, and truly flavorful. Sis also ordered the Teppan Grilled Pork Gyoza which japanese potstickers — their version has a different elongated shape but it’s very meaty.

Of course we had the Ebi Tempura — this is Twinkle’s fave.

For our mains, Sis ordered the Chicken Teriyai Ramen while Daddydoodledoo ordered the Chicken paitan Ramen.

Twinkle and I shared this big bowl. I forgot what it’s called — parang Charsiu Ramen with Buttered Corn. Ganern! hihihi. The noodles are chewy and the broth was super tasty!
