Set Meals Galore: Botejyu MOA Review

In my last post, I mentioned that we had dinner before Britney’s Concert here in Manila (still trying to recover from this once in a lifetime experience). We dined in at Botejyu. The Botejyu branch in Mall of Asia is located at the Galleo Wing. It is near IMAX for easier reference.

I didn’t really have any special reason as to why I chose Botejyu for dinner. It was between Basil and Botejyu, the latter won because E said so. Really, he did in a not so direct way.

See, the day before Britney’s concert I was looking at possible restaurants where I can treat my brother. I checked Booky.Ph and saw that they had a special deal for Basil.

While strolling around the Galleo Wing of MOA, sipping on Mango Slushie Tea, I chanced upon Botejyu. I told E that it was between the two. He looked at reviews for both restaurants, then shared that Botejyu had better reviews, and the food looked better.

Good for Your Tummy and Your Pocket

So here’s my short Botejyu MOA review!


While we were waiting for my brother and for his partner to arrive, I snapped photos of their rice bowl and set meals. Most are priced just below P400 (USD 9). The price can be a bit too much for a daily meal but for a special date or occasion, the price is just right. You can check out their menu here.19401197_10213129403732413_265764815_o



We ordered a total of five dishes. I chose the Beef & Tamagotoji Egg Rice Bowl (P365 or USD 8).


The serving size was good enough for sharing, to be honest. I wasn’t able to finish off everything in my bowl! The dish was delectable. Something I imagine myself craving for over and over again. I have to credit it all to their special sauce!

E ordered the Pork Cutlet Curry Rice Bowl (P395 or USD 8.5).


As all married couples do, we shared our dishes with each other. In this case, though, I only had a bit of his because I loved mine so much! From what I can remember, E was very much fulfilled with this dish. As he shared, the curry flavor blended well with the pork cutlet and sticky rice.

Aside from our two rice bowls, we also ordered their Premium Moonlight Yakisoba (P375 or USD 8).

Iz alive!

It was just okay for me, maybe because we didn’t mix it as soon as it was served. It was a little on the dry side. Taste wise though it was still good.

My brother ordered their Garlic Rice with Bacon & Egg Set and Kushikatsu Platter (P370 or USD 8), while his partner ordered their Beef Sukiyaki Rice Set (P395 or USD 8.5). I can’t really give you any feedback for their dishes but they did say that it was okay.

Post for Free Ice Scream

What I love about Botejyu MOA is their special promo. I wasn’t able to take a photo of the mini-standee but you get a free Ice Cream (match/vanilla/sesame flavor) when you post about your Botejyu experience.

I had poor signal that night but I was able to charm my brother’s partner to post on his Facebook. True enough, we were given a free serving of ice cream!

Final YUM Verdict

For my final YUM verdict for Botejyu MOA, I give it a yum factor of 4 out of 5 stars. I love their rice bowls and I honestly think that their set meals are worth it. I will definitely come back for more! The ambiance was good and the staff were so nice too.

Do make sure that you post about your experience when you dine in so you can get a free ice cream too!

    Everything looks delis! We maybe the only couple that doesn’t really share food, because Nick hates to give his food to me, lol. He’s thinner than me

  2. Betty says:

    Yum indeed! I would have loved any of the dishes you ordered! Don’t you love the dry onion shavings that cause the noodle dish to look alive? So awesome!

  3. Claudia Krusch says:

    Everything looks pretty good I would give it a try. Looks like they have a variety for people to choose from, I wonder what is ordered most.

  8. Adea says:

    All of it looks really good and must’ve tasted so. I don’t like it when food is dry so when i see sauces I like it haha. I hope you had a good time and I loved how they give free ice cream if you post about them, so thoughtful!
