On August 17, Dohtonbori will launch THREE Pinoy-inspired Okonomiyaki flavors!


Get ready for #TheFilpinoOkonomiyakiExperience

Dohtonbori was established in Tokyo in 1990 and is hailed as the #1 okonomiyaki restaurant chain in Japan. With over 300 stores worldwide, including multiple locations in Thailand, Taiwan, and now, Manila – Dohtonbori has proven their okonomiyaki dishes to be out of this world.

While the chain has been embraced from the moment they arrived on our shores in November 2015 — a recent announcement from the brand has shown how we Filipinos have left an indelible mark on them as well. This is why, starting on Friday, August 17, Dohtonbori will be proudly launching #TheFilipinoOkonomiyakiExperience just in time for Buwan ng Wika!

The limited series pays homage to three local dishes we hold close to our hearts:

Kare Kare Okonomiyaki

You’ll have to take our word on this, but — the flavors of okonomiyaki complemented the ingredients of kare-kare perfectly! Chunks of beef, eggplant, and stringbeans are tossed into okonomiyaki batter then coated generously with thick and savory kare-kare sauce. A sprinkle of peanuts and a dollop of bagoong completes the dish.

Bicol Express Okonomiyaki

This fusion okonomiyaki is sure to spice up your day — we mean that quite literally! Bicol Express is beloved for its combination of savory, sweet, and sour taste, but what makes this dish a hit is the milky coconut sauce which balances the fiery chili. This is a dish that bites and kicks back.

Sisig Okonomiyaki

If you thought okonomiyaki couldn’t sizzle on the griddle more than it already does — you’ve probably never thought of marrying sisig with it. Thankfully, the brilliant (and evil) minds at Dohtonbori are determined to ruin your diet! This one is the most sinful – topped with crunchy chunks of pork, a fried egg, and that familiar drizzle of Japanese mayonnaise.

Fun fact: Okonomiyaki is derived from the world okonomi which means "what you like" and yaki which means "grill."

Plain and simple, from the name of the dish alone — there are no rules. Grill what you like! Skeptics may think it totally crazy and even a little foolish for a restaurant to tamper with their signature dish. Believe us, this is more than a gimmick! The flavors makes sense. You’ll have to try it for yourself. The series will be available starting Saturday, August 17, 2019.

With this distinctly Filipino line up, Dohtonbori reimagines and pushes the boundaries of what the okonomiyaki can be.
