Authentic Japanese cuisine has taken over One Bonifacio High Street with the launch of Botejyu’s first flagship restaurant. Botejyu is one of Viva International Food & Restaurant, Inc.’s franchises, the same company that brought unique and winning brands such as Wing Zone, Pepi Cubano, Paper Moon Cake & Boutique Cafe and Yogorino.
The opening was led by Vicente Raphael “VR” del Rosario IV Senior Vice-President and celebrity endorsers Jeric Raval and host Giselle Sanchez. Botejyu is a whimsical mishmash of “bote” (the sound of a just-flipped okonomiyaki) and “jyu” (the delightful sizzling sound as it cooks on the teppan grill). Exactly the sounds you’ll hear at their kitchen preparing their famous Okonomiyaki.
Premium Moonlight Oko has a substantial mixture of beef, pork, shrimp, squid and fried egg cookd in a teppan grill and topped with signature secret sauces and white mayonaise to produce konomiyaki that’s crispy on the outside but light, fluffy and flavorful on the inside.
Okosoba, also called as the modern “yaki“, is made with their house yakisoba noodles and cabbage that is packed in between special batter and egg, a truly comforting dish.
You may also indulge in their all-time favorites including the Pork Paita Ramen with Char Siu which has thick pork broth and tender sliced pork.
Japanese Wagyu Beef Rib-Eye Steak is topped with shiokombu or salted dried kelp to bring out the flavor.
Boteyju keeps the original flavors consistent even to this day, in fact, imports 70% of its ingredients—from meats to sauces.
The next set of dishes are my family’s favorite. Our Japanese food adventure won’t be complete without the follwing – Shrimp Tempura and Teppan Grilled Pork Gyoza
Takuyaki, any variant will do. We’re a sucker for takuyaki, good thing Boteyju got us a plate of 6 premium takuyakis in different sauces – All-Star Takuyaki.
I’m not a fan of sushi but wife and kids are so I’m still adding it on the list of dishes we can’t go without when dining at Japanese restaurants.
Botejyu in the Philippines imports 70% of its ingredients—from meats to sauces to keep the original flavors consistent and authentic and to keep customers from coming back.
“With the opening of our flagship branch in One Bonifacio High Street, we will also start to offer new premium dishes that can continue our founder’s mission of bringing the true taste of authentic Japanese traditional cuisine to more people,” del Rosario explained.
