There's a new okonomiyaki shop in Manila
It's the biggest okonomiyaki chain in Osaka.
(SPOT.ph) Are your appetites ready, Manila? You're about to be hit by yet another Japanese sensation. This time, it's the okonomiyaki or Japanese pancakes layered with scrambled eggs, noodles, and a myriad of other toppings. Japan's biggest chain Dohtonbori opened in late 2015, and now, Osaka's beloved Chibo Okonomiyaki is taking a slice of that, well, okonomiyaki.
Chibo Okonomiyaki was founded in 1973 in Sennichimae, Osaka, Japan. It has 64 outlets in Japan, with Hawaii, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines having one each. Chibo is careful to make every one of their branches unique, from the look to the menu, so if you've been to one of these overseas, you might still want to check out the newly opened outlet in the equally new S Maison mall.
The tables are equpped with a grill so you can watch the action live. Call it a spectacle, call it delayed gratification—either way, your stomachs will start grumbling. Things to look forward to is a pork-filled pancake, another pumped with cheese, and yet another crowned with meringue.
Chibo Okonomiyaki is at 2/F S Maison, Conrad Manila, Seaside Boulevard, Coral Way, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City (898-3333).
