A taste of Japanese cuisine lands in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig! To be more specific, Botejyu Japanese Restaurant is now open in One Bonifacio High Street!
Now its flagship store, Botejyu One Bonifacio opens at the 3rd Level of the said mall. Staying true to its promise of offering authentic Japanese cuisine, expect popular dishes from each prefecture.
What makes Boteyju special is that it brings the authentic taste of local Japanese food to more people in full support of regional revitalization. Thus, reading through its interesting menu, one can find all of Japan’s local specialty gourmet food from various regions throughout Japan.
To keep the original flavors consistent even to this day, Botejyu is particular about ingredients that go into every dish. Botejyu in the Philippines, in fact, imports 70% of its ingredients—from meats to sauces.
Okonomiyaki by Boteyju
Boteyju’s Okonomiyaki, an original concept by its founder, is well-balanced and nutritious, having generous amounts of shredded fresh cabbage, and other ingredients melded into the house batter mix.
The Premium Moonlight Oko, in particular, has caught everyone’s weakness for great okonomiyaki with its substantial mixture of beef, pork, shrimp, squid and fried egg cooked in a teppan grill and topped with signature secret sauces and white mayonnaise to produce konomiyaki that’s crispy on the outside but light, fluffy, and flavorful on the inside.
You may also choose from other flavors like Mochi & Gouda Cheese, Pork, Pork & Kimchi, Bacon & Cheese, the Classic Osaka, among others. The light and creamy Original Osaka mayonnaise that can be found on top of the okos is a Botejyu house formulation.
More Authentic Japanese Offerings
More than just Okonimiyaki, Takoyaki also takes center stage at BotejyuI
if you can’t decide which takoyaki flavor you want, go for the All-star Takoyaki and enjoy six different variants of these sumptuous crisp on the outside, tender and chewy ball-shaped goodies on the inside. The wheat flour-based batter is a proprietary Botejyu ingredient, and goes well with the fresh tako (octopus) bits. It comes with six individual sauces and flavors: umami sauce and mayo, tomato sauce, spicy mentai mayo, thick spicy sauce, and salt and garlic sauce.
But it doesn’t end there! Don’t miss to take note of some of these specialties:
Move up to the mains and try Pork Paitan Ramen, a rich and delicious pork and noodle dish dashed with a trace of Botejyu’s magical oil that adds soul to the soup. The Shrimp Tempura Platter is also one of their best-selling dishes, a testament to the Filipino love for fried food. The batter is light and crunchy, with hints of natural umami flavors.
If you want something heavy and hearty, the Amiyaki Grilled Pork Rice Bowl beckons. A local specialty of Hokkaido, this rice bowl is topped with thick grilled pork slices and a special soy sauce that lends a sweet-savory flavor.
Moreover, you can always say yes to their yakisoba and get warmed by their Osaka Premium Moonlight, Mixed Seafood, Beef Kalbi Sukiyaki, and the Pork flavors.
Botejyu’s Karaage, meanwhile, is the number one karaage in Japan, and has become the favorite of chicken-loving Filipino foodies as well.
Other famous dishes include the Teppan Pork Gyoza, Spring Rolls, Beef Sukiyaki Rice Set, Omusoba, and of course, the other original concept, their Okosoba. Also called “modern-yaki” by Nishino, this hearty dish is made with their house yakisoba noodles and cabbage that is packed in between the special batter and egg, a truly comforting dish.
“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,” says Vicente Raphael “VR” del Rosario IV, Senior Vice President for Viva International Food & Restaurants Inc..
