Chibo Okonomiyaki: One of Japan’s Best, now in Manila

Chibo Okonomiyaki

Chibo Okonomiyaki – 5F, The Podium, Mandaluyong City

Okonomiyaki Chibo Restaurant was founded in 1973 at Sennichimae in Osaka, a district famous for gourmet eateries. The name Chibo comes from the flag mark of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, a powerful war lord who lived in Japan during the 16th century and built Osaka Castle. His flag mark bears a pattern of clustering calabashes.

I’ve always been a fan of Asian cuisine. If you’ve been reading my previous blog posts, you’d know that I’m a huge dumplings/dim-sum lover, and this upgraded okonomiyaki from Chibo will definitely get a go signal for me to try.

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savory pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaninghow you likeorwhat you like“, and yaki meaninggrill – Wikipedia

Before we indulge in Chibo’s Okonomiyaki’s – okonomiyaki goodness, let us first check out their brand new offering:

Premium Executive Set Meals!

  • Unagi Kabayaki JuFreshwater Japanese Eel marinated in Sweet Sake and Dark Soy Sauce.
  • Mixed Seafood JuNorwegian Salmon, U.S. Scallops, Squid and Tiger Prawn in Salt Garlic Sauce.

Seafood fans unite! (that includes me) Chibo Okonomiyaki will surely give your palate a big hit of mouthwatering aquatic goodness as you indulge in their masterfully crafted seafood set meals. These two are probably my favorites among all set meals – because I’m a seafood lover like that. 

  • US Angus JuU.S. Prime Angus Steak in garlic ginger wine sauce.
  • Pork JuSpinach, onions, and pork belly slices in Shoyu Wine Sauce.

Where are the meat at? well here you are looking at two set meals for all y’all meat lovers. Their Angus and Pork meals were both flavorful and tender, you’d want another meal to go. I’d personally recommend the Angus Steak Ju for maximum satisfaction.

  • Hamburger Steak Ju – Grated Pork and Beef mixed with onion, garlic, and panko flakes.
  • Osaka Meal – Half Okonomiyaki and half yakisoba with mentaiko mayo.

Yes, that’s a hamburger meal – because why not? Everybody loves burgers anyways, so why not have it incorporated with other sumptuous ingredients for a more terrific dish right? and behold, our first meal feature with okonomiyaki! by now you should already know what an okonomiyaki is, and knowing what’s inside this heavenly Japanese pancake assures us only the freshest and best quality ingredients goes inside our hungry tummy. And oh, yakisoba is a Japanese stir-fry noodle dish. Chibo’s version was lip-smacking!

  • Doutonburi Okonomiyaki – Beef with Konnyaku (traditional Japanese jelly-like health food made from a kind of potato called “Konnyaku potato” and calcium hydroxide or oxide calcium extracted from eggshells), Shrimp, Cheese and Pork

One of Chibo Okonomiyaki’s bestsellers, the doutonburi is an upgrade of the classic – where a flavorful mix of beef, pork, shrimp, topped with velvety cheese and bonito flakes completed this authentic Japanese pancake, giving guests a warm welcome to Dotonburi – a famous tourist destination in the City of Osaka in Japan.

  • Shirayukihime – Extra soft textured okonomiyaki with Prawn, Bacon, Pork, Tomato, Avocado, Cheese, topped with Meringue.

This amazing-looking and original setup is Chibo Okonomiyaki’s star, and I must say, I was flabbergasted when it was presented. It’s huge! (prolly good for 4pax) or just one if you’d like – lol. And the taste, oh I can never forget the fantastic aroma and extraordinary taste – an instant favorite! A visit at Chibo Okonomiyaki will never be complete without an order of Shirayukihime. Trust me, this one is the b o m b.

If you wish to enjoy your meals and okonomiyaki with authentic Japanese beverages, look no further, Chibo Okonomiyaki has a lot of them for you! Make sure you check the alcohol content, and to always drink moderately.
