Dohtonbori: An okonomiyaki experience

Quite a lot of new restaurants have opened at SM North Edsa and I've been eyeing this one when they put up the opening soon tarp.
Dohtonbori is located at the upper ground floor of SM North Edsa.
We were no.21 on the waiting list when we arrived but I wasn't really surprised because of the restaurant's reputation and it was valentines day. Surprisingly though we just waited for less than 15minutes before it was our turn.

The place was like the usual japanese scene.

They also have couches and low table setups.

I decided to treat my mom and my sister for valentines day (more like single's awareness day) so here we are.


They even have instructions on how to cook it properly.

What we ordered

3 rice sets ( rice and miso soup ) PHP 90 each

Pork Yakiniku PHP180

Ramen Shoyu PHP290

Deluxe Okonomiyaki PHP360
Four Cheese Okonomiyaki PHP290

The server prepared and cooked the okonomiyaki for us. Though you can cook it yourself of course.

How to Cook Okonomiyaki
1. Mix the batter well and pour it.
2. Do the Flip
5 minutes on one side then flip
5 minutes on the other side then flip
5 minutes again on the other side and you're done.

3. Put the terriyaki sauce, mayonaise, nori and another powder and tadaa! your okonomiyaki is ready.
Okonomiyaki is basically a flat takoyaki for me :)

Yummy! I loved the four cheese but the deluxe was good too. 
We weren't able to finish everything because we're already full. And honestly it's "nakakaumay" (please help translate ahaha) after awhile. 
The service was fast and the staff were very attentive filling up your water without the need of telling them. I love the experience and the food and the place. #happykid :)
