Okonomiyaki Chibo is a famous restaurant in Japan known for its fusion of okonomiyaki and teppanyaki. The top okonomiyaki restaurant in Osaka continues their mission in providing enjoyable gastronomic experience here in the Philippines with their two branches: S Maison and The Podium. And last August 13, Chibo Okonomiyaki Philippines introduced new and exciting food items on their menu.
Chibo Okonomiyaki is more than just the authentic Osaka-style okonomiyaki. There is no need to wait for a seat sale to Japan for a food trip because Chibo Okonomiyaki has a good line up of Japanese food. Fans of spicy food will surely enjoy their Spicy Yakisoba as a starter. It isn’t just a kick. It is indeed spicy. For those who are used to the instant Japanese food you can buy from the groceries, the dish will baptise you to the authentic Japanese cuisine and it will replace how you thought of yakisoba.

Chicken and Coriander Salad
The salad is a showstopper because of its colors and the smell of cilantro flavor. That’s why the Chicken and Coriander Salad is deserving of a longer photoshoot before tossing it. It has a generous serving of other greens as well. The dressing goes well with the chicken tender strips. PhP 288
Kimchi and Pork Teppan
With a number of dishes to be served, I played a me-surprise-myself guessing game. Without finding what the name of the dish, I blind tasted the next teppanyaki dishes. Teppanyaki is a Japanese style of pan-frying that uses metal griddle called teppan which the term was derived. I didn’t realize I was eating kimchi for this teppanyaki. It may or may not be a good thing for the people in the opposite spectrum (haters and fans) in liking kimchi. The strong flavor of kimchi is spread through out giving enough chance for the pork to burst its flavor too. PhP 238
The dish is very straightforward in presenting itself telling us “Hey folks, here’s a sausage treat which your Pinoy taste buds are familiar with”. Sweet and peppery. Order these for the kids. PhP 238
As a fanatic of chicken wing wars in the local eats, I usually choose garlic parmesan as the control variable of the gastro experiment and I tend to forget that there’s Japanese sweet-sesame-soy-sauce style too. Chibo Okonomiyaki didn’t fail in the chicken wings category. However, I wish they have a half-dozen choice apart from the 4-pc single order which they are already serving because I can’t get enough of it. PhP 188. By the way, they also have a grilled chicken with garlic in the menu that can satisfy everyone’s cravings for garlic parmesan chicken. PhP 388
Grilled Shrimp with Garlic Oil
Everyone in the table likes shrimp and before I got to hold on an untouched dish for a snap, they’re almost gone. Good thing there’s another plate of 6 shrimps coming. My bias for shrimp would put it on the eat-more bottom part of the food pyramid. I am easily satisfied. Thanks to Chibo Okonomiyaki, I am complete for the self-imposed daily recommended intake of shrimps. One tip though, you should dive in to the grilled shrimp as soon as it’s served. The shrimp wouldn’t fall from its shell easily when you keep the single remaining Pinoy piece longer. Don’t be shy. PhP588
Pork & Kimchi Tonpeiyaki, Pork & Cheese Tonpeiyaki
Tonpeiyaki is a popular dish in Japan which is an omelet served with the house sauce and Japanese mayo dressing. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of the two Chibo Okonomiyaki tonpeiyaki dishes. But these are the new dishes that I am recommending to everyone else as the must-try dishes. Pork & Cheese Tonpeiyaki is my favorite because the union of the flavors of the cheese, sweet sauce, Japanese mayo, and pork is just flawless. Pork & Kimchi didn’t disappoint as well and left me a homework to research about the difference between Japanese kimuchi and Korean kimchi. Sorry but I am liking the Japanese version now. PhP 188.
More new items
Grilled Octopus and Grilled Oyster are also part of the newest offerings of Chibo Okonomiyaki. Seafood lovers will enjoy the chewy chopped tentacles and the flavorful oyster meat. Meanwhile the Teppanyaki Gizzard is nice to be paired with alcohol. And to clear the savory fillings of one’s taste buds, Rice Flour Dumplings with azuki bean sauce will occupy the room for desserts.
