BOTEJYU now at Ayala Malls Vertis North, Itadakimasu!

Japanese food has been recognized by the world as a very sophisticated cuisine.
There are many distinctive features of Japanese cuisine such as “the quality of the ingredients”, “healthiness”, “beautiful presentation” and “hospitality”. Japanese food has become popular around the world as people appreciate these qualities. Me, being assigned in Japan for a year, have experienced these qualities and have developed, I can say, a high standard for food, specially for Japanese cuisine. Botejyu has joined the Japanese cuisine game here in the Philippines since their launch last 2016.

With Botejyu opening it’s doors in the Philippines, I was excited that there is another food player that will bring the Japanese food game up a notch. There will be new Japanese food offers and experiences that will make me reminisce my stay in Japan, and Botejyu totally brought that to the table.

Just a little tidbit of information and history: Botejyu was born in the gourmet city of Tamade, Osaka in 1946 as an Okonomiyaki restaurant. BOTEJYU®, was coined from the rhythmic cooking sound of okonomiyaki. The first part of the name, “BOTE” comes from the flipping sound of the okonomiyaki and the second part of the name, “JYU”, represents the sizzling sound as it cooks on the teppan grill.


They launched in the Philippines last 2016 with its SM Mall of Asia and SM Megamall branches, and now they are opening their branch in the North of Manila, at the Ayala Malls Vertis North.
