Premium Mix Moonlight Egg Okonomiyaki

A main dish made of shredded veggies would seem to be a bit off isn’t it? But Okonomiyaki will make you change that disposition specially for this version by Botejyu. I mean, who doesn’t want a mix of beef, pork, shrimp, and even squid in just one dish, mixed together with love and tenderized with a special sauce at that? The result is a great dining experience. Don’t underestimate this enormous looking dish, as it may be made from veggies, it is truly a treat and a filling one so make sure to make room for your tummy for this bad looking but definitely delicious dish.

The BBQ sauce is on point and the abundance of veggies will help you neutralize the flavourful taste if you need it. The tenderness of the pork is also something that you will enjoy as well. And one more thing, this is served by an enormous portion so be ready to be filled with goodness and joy with this one.
