Chibo Okonomiyaki - it was delicious but I think there’s more flour in the mix compared to Okonomiyaki we had in other restaurants.
Omelette yakisoba - pork yakisoba wrapped in omelette. It’s tastes pretty good

Staff were courteous and attentive as well 🙂

As a Japanese cuisine fan, i was thrilled to dine here at Chibo Okonomiyaki. I only got the chance to try a few of their enticing offers, namely:
1. Spicy Yakisoba - it was indeed spicy. If i remember correctly, they add 3 kinds of chilis/spice in this yakisoba. And fyi, you can actually request for a milder version if you can't tolerate too much heat. So that's a plus.
2. Pork and Kimchi Teppan - A simple dish yet full of impact. I can taste the pork and kimchi on every bite with hints of garlic chips. Love it!
3. Sausage Teppan - this sausage is imported from Japan (just like most of their ingredients). This tasted unique. It's a kind of sausage that Filipinos would love, but it has a unique flavor that we can't find in our local markets.
4. Chicken and Coriander Salad - i loved this one, too! A generous serving of lettuce, coriander and chicken is a perfect way to start off your meal.
5. Kimchi and Pork Tonpeiyaki - i looooove this. Kimchi and pork complement each other and the omelette made this combination unique and oh so delicious. This was my favorite.

I also got the chance to try out some grilled octupus legs and a dessert that tastes like rice cake with creamy white sauce (sorry i forgot to ask what it's called). But this dessert is really good. I would definitely recommend this one. And btw, you have to eat the octopus legs right away to enjoy its freshness fully.

Ambience- classy, modern Japanese interiors

Price- Moderate. Some of their ingredients are imported directly from Japan, so their price is actually reasonable.

That would be all for today.
Thank you so much for reading. See you on my next review. 128522

Chibo Okonomiyaki is Osaka’s most famous Okonomiyaki Resto.

We recently visited their second branch in Podium to try out their new food offerings.

Their Podium branch opened last December 2017.

Located at the 5th floor of The Podium, Chibo Okonomiyaki is casual dining, with japanese inspired interiors.

What I noticed in this branch is that there’s no teppanyaki tables here unlike in S Maison. The reason behind is that in Podium they cater mostly to businessmen and corporate people who doesn’t have plenty of time to spend on their meal breaks.

They have new food offerings on their menu. Here are some of the food we sampled.

Chicken and Coriander Salad (P288.00)
Grilled chicken, lettuce, coriander, topped with onions and drizzled with sambal dressing.

Teppanyaki Gizzard (P238.00)
Chicken gizzard mixed with their yakiniku sauce and some scallions.

Grilled Shrimp with Garlic Oil (P588.00)
Grilled shrimp topped with some garlic bits and drenched with garlic oil.

Grilled Chicken with Garlic (P388.00)
Grilled chicken with chopped garlic and drenched with garlic oil.

Spicy Yakisoba (P288.00)
A combination of yakisoba with pork, squid, chives, chili pepper, garlic chips and topped with egg.

Kimchi and Pork Teppan (P288.00)
Kimchi, pork strips and topped with garlic chips.

Grilled Octopus (P388.00)
Grilled octopus, bean sprouts, with their yakiniku sauce and lime.

Chicken Wings (P188.00)
Chicken wings with teppanyaki sauce and topped with sesame seeds.

Doutonburi Okonomiyaki (P388.00)
Okonomiyaki with cheese, pork, and sugi-kon.

If you want a great meal experience that nourishes not just your body. Then you should definitely visit Chibo Okonomiyaki and experience what a great meal is all about.

Chibo de tabeyou!!!
Osaka's best Okonomiyaki is now in Manila, "Chibo Okonomiyaki" opens their 2nd branch at Podium Mall. 

Together with other food bloggers and social media influencers I was invited to try their new Premium Executive Set Meals served with Rice, Salad, Miso Soup, and House blend iced tea. 

Hamburger Steak with Teriyaki Sauce P488.00
 - Grated pork and beef mixed with onion, garlic, and panko flakes

Cheese Hamburger Steak with Teriyaki Sauce
P588.00
 - Grated pork and beef mixed with onion, garlic, cheese, and panko flakes

Osaka Meal
P588.00
 - Half okonomiyaki and half yakisoba with mentaiko mayo

Oden Meal
P588.00
 - Grilled fish cake alongside deep-fried fish cake, konnyaku and daikon radish in Japanese-style stew partnered with grilled salmon

Pork Ju
P488.00
 - Spinach, onions, pork belly slices in shoyu wine sauce 

Mixed Seafood Ju
P688.00
 - Norwegian salmon, U.S. scallops, squid and tiger prawn in salt garlic sauce 

U.S. Angus Steak Ju
P788.00
 - U.S. Prime Angus Steak in garlic ginger wine sauce

Unagi Kabayaki Ju P888.00 (Must Try)

The Unagi Kabayaki Ju is a must try in the Premium Executive Set Meals, a fresh water Japanese Eel marinated in a sweet sake and dark soy sauce. I'm a fan of eating fish like Eel specially when I dine at a Japanese Resto and this Ugani here in Chibo is one of my favorite. 
                                           
Okonomiyaki

Another must try is the Shirayukihime Php 588 - a soft Japanese pancake mixed and made with flour, bacon, prawn, pork, tomato and avocado topped with meringue decorated with crispy prawn head. Though this Okonomiyaki was prepared for 30 mins, it was worth the wait because it was delicious and I'm sure this will be your favorite as well. 

Mix Okonomiyaki (Php 328)

  - Squid, pork and squid

Overall/Summary:  
The food experience is superb which exceeds my expectation thumbs up Chibo. The place was cozy and comfortable. Their crew was very approachable, neat and they dress up like Japanese which makes me feel like I'm in JAPAN. 

Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita!!!

Your eyes might deceive you of the serving size of their okonomiyakis, but don’t be fooled! Because it is really heavy for the tummy. Haha!

🏖 AMBIENCE:

Yellowish interior with Kintoun Cloud design on the side (Goku’s Nimbus Cloud in Dragon Ball Z)

🍽 FOOD & 127865DRINKS:

What caught the attention of my tongue:

Shirayukihime (P588) This is the holy grail of all the Okonomiyakis that is served in Chibo. The meringue that looks like ice cream makes it even more instagrammable. It creates a nice sweetness kick that compliments well with the okonomiyaki. With the quite bitter taste of avocado that goes well with the prawn, bacon, tomato and saltiness of the cheese.

 Please take note that If you are going to order this, make sure to tell the server to have it cooked ASAP, because it might take around 30-45 minutes before this can be served. 

Chibo Okonomiyaki (P488) Prawn, scallops, beef & pork. This is the second one that I would order if I want a toned down version of Shirayukihime.

Unagi Kabayaki Ju (Favorite) - Fresh water japanese eel marinated in sweet cake and sweet dark soy sauce (P888) Yes, it would set you back with an P800+ meal, but there is something with the taste of this japanese eel that made me like it a lot. 

Oden Meal (P588) Grilled fish cake, konnyaku, deep-fried fish cake, and daiko radish in a Japanese-style stew. I love the texture on how it rolls inside my mouth. My first impression was it looks it taste flat but lo and behold! It’s actually pretty good! :)

128134‍♂️ SERVICE:

 Very attentive service crew. :D

🚳 PARKING:

 It is located inside Podium Mall.

127759 OVERALL:

 So far Chibo is the best Okonomiyaki for me in town. They did set a standard.

If you find yourself in Ortigas, there is one Japanese restaurant in the Podium that serves good okonomiyaki among other iconic Japanese fares.

Chibo Okonomiyaki unveiled its 8 Premium Executive Set Meals that are served with rice, salad, miso soup and house blend iced tea and are also available in its Conrad S'Maison branch.

Here they are :

PORK JU P488
Spinach, Onions, pork belly slices in shoyu wine sauce..Pork belly slices where thin and flavorful . Potato salad with lettuce was delicious. Miso soup was hot and authentic.The whole set was satisfying and filling.

MIXED SEA FOOD JU P688
Norwegian salmon, US scallops,squid and tiger prawn in salt and garlic sauce . Seafood were generally good albeit on the cold side due to the time we spent taking pictures. I shall order this again on my return visit.

US ANGUS STEAK JU P788
US Prime Angus Steak in garlic ginger wine sauce. Meaty, juicy and flavorful. You can request the server for your preferred doneness.

UNAGI KABAYAKI JU P888
Fresh water Japanese set marinated in
sweet dark soy sauce. My favorite among all 8 dishes, the unagi was sweet and delicious . Portion was just right for one. I am not sharing if I order this again haha

HAMBURGER STEAK WITH TERIYAKI SAUCE P488
Grated pork and beef mixed with onions, garlic and panko. Patty was flavorful and substantial. It paired well with the green salad .

CHEESE HAMBURGER STEAK WITH
TERIYAKI SAUCE P588
Grated pork and beef mixed with onion, garlic, cheese and panko flakes, Chibo Okonomiyaki's Cheese burger Steak was quite delicious. I dont mind ordering this again on my next visit

OSAKA MEAL P588
Half okonomiyaki and half yakisoba with mentaiko mayo. Carbo loading at its best. This dish made me curious how the authentic Okonomiyaki will taste in the Land of the Rising Sun

ODEN MEAL P588
Grilled fish cake alongside deep fried fish cake ,konnyaku, and daikon radish in Japanese style stew partneredwith grilled salmon

This is on my list of must-try-dishes again on my next visit. I was not able to appreciate it because it turned cold due to the time spent taking pictures.

Okonomiyaki

Butatara Okonomiyaki P288

Classic Okonomiyaki with pork

Doutonburi Okonomiyaki P388

Beef with cheese, shrimp and pork

Chibo Okonomiyaki P488

Prawn, Sacallop, Beef , Pork

Omusoba P288

Omelette Yakisoba

Clearly their specialty is Okonomiyaki. All the variants are filling and delicious. My favorite among the 4 is Chibo Okonomiyaki followed closely by Dotonbouri. Each serving can easily feed 2-3 people with other orders.

SHIRAYUKIHIME P588

Extra soft textured okonomiyaki with prawn, bacon, pork tomato, avocado, cheese topped with meringue, The word shirayukihime literally translated means "snow-white" or "snow princess" thus the 3 "scoops" of meringue which mimic snow balls. It made this soft textured okonomiyaki look quite "tall"

It was certainly a different experience watching the assembly of this dish which we initially thought was dessert. Expectation vs. reality.

It turned out it was savory not sweet. But after a second or two of wrapping my head around this new idea, I became more accepting and appreciative of the different creamy and textured elements inside the dish

Overall, my favorites were the unagi, the two kinds of burger , the Pork Ju and all the okonomiyakis.

Yes the 8 Premium Executive Sets seem pricey relative to the other Japanese restaurants you have been to. But then again you get what you pay for --- good food , best quality ingredients, authentic Japanese fare.

Chibo Okonomiyaki is located at the 5th level of The Podium in Ortigas and at Level 2 S Maison Conrad Manila Seaside Boulevard cor Coral Way Mall of Asia Complex Pasay City. They are open from 11 am to 3 pm , 6pm to 11 pm

Thank you Chibo Okonomiyaki's for having us and @boyeatworldph and Maxine Los Banos for the invite. Flatlay by @ilovetoeatph
