ordered katsudon, cheesy pork okonomiyaki, rice set and gyoza. I think we ordered too much for two or I shouldn't have had rice set 128517 but everything was good and we were satisfied because it's affordable 128076

Okonomiyaki has already been present in Japan for over 500 years. It became extremely popular during the World War II when resources were extremely scarce and the Japanese made use of whatever ingredients they have with the flour paste and formed a circular dish to what we all now call Okonomiyaki. Currently, Okonomiyaki has become one of the most popular staple food for the Japanese, especially in Osaka, where they consider this as their essential food soul.
 
From the word itself, Okonomi means “What you want” and Yaki which means “Cooking”, it is basically cooking what you want.
 
Ever since I tried Chibo Okonomiyaki, I’ve always had my eyes open for other okonomiyaki places. Dohtonburi was the first few Japanese restaurants that brought okonomiyaki to the Philippines and I’m surprised at how I’ve only tried it now.
 
We booked a reservation for four under Booky to get Php100 off. Yay! 128518

Famished, I quickly ordered.
 
HAMBURG CHEESE STEAK [Php360] 1108811088110881108811088
Thick and meaty Hamburg Steak Okonomiyaki with sizzling cheese to top it off.
I’m so glad I made the right choice. It has ground beef + sliced beef and cheese to seal everything! To make even more yum, I added bonito flakes, seaweed and Japanese Mayo.
 
GYOZA [Php120 5pcs] 1108811088110881108811088
I was shocked when I saw their Gyoza was only Php120. So cheap compared to the normal Japanese restaurants! The flavors were average.
 
Unlike Chibo, Dohtonburi cooks your orders right in front of you which is cool because you really know what’s in your food and you get what you ordered. But service was not good here. Our server barely smiled at us for the whole duration of our visit. Quite weird. Minus 1 star for the service.

Liked the ambiance and setting of the restaurant. It's clean, spacious and nicely designed 128077🏻

I've eaten in three Dohtonbori branches now and this is my favorite. Primarily because it's more spacious (the one in UP Town feels cramped despite the pretty decor) and the servers are very attentive and efficient. Even if you opt to be the one to do the cooking, they'll step in and help if they see you doing something wrong without you having to ask for assistance.

I had the weekday set and I opted for the beef over the pork. It's served with rice and miso soup. If you're super hungry, this might be slightly bitin on its own. But otherwise, it's very filling. The sauce makes the meat tasty.

So excited when I heard they finally opened in Manila. We've been to Osaka but failed to visit Dotonbori cause I opt to go to Kuromon Ichiba Market for the baby octopus on stick. 1280251285229996🏻️ So I promised myself that if ever I'd have a chance to go to Japan again I'll make sure not to miss Dotonbori. But hey, I don't have to go to Japan they came to the Philippines . 128514

Okonomiyaki: one of their specialties, I first tried Cheesy Pork and it's just okay tastes like a normal okonomiyaki (japanese pancake with batter, cabbage, meat, okonomiyaki sauce, and japanese mayo) the only difference is, it has mozzarella on the inside. Hmmm so gooey.

128073🏼Must Try! But then I came back and try Hiroshima Okonomiyaki. I must say, this is the BEST okonomiyaki I've ever tasted. I even tried this in Hiroshima, Japan and the soba does not taste like how it tasted in Dohtonbori. Tip: cook your own food, it's a cool experience. Let the soba touch the pan/griddle so it will toast a bit and it'll be so tasty and gooey!

Ramen: so so

Chicken Karaage: the chicken is juicy but I hope they can drain the excess oil before serving it or put it over a paper or tissue.

Price - 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑

It's actually cheaper than what I expected. Our bill is 1k plus for two persons. With that cost you'll surely feel full until dinner.

Ambiance - 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵

Look at my photo with people sitting on the floor and japanese posters on the wall. Looks like a legit tatami. 128076🏻 but if you don't want to sit on the floor there are also tables on the other side of the resto. If you prefer the floor you'll be asked to remove your shoes and put them in the locker. The staffs are courteous as well, they shout a chant every time a guest arrives.
