I was just browsing facebook when I accidentally glimpsed on a picture of Takoyaki from Octoboy Food Express’ facebook page. Eager to experience its goodness coming from its delish looks, I immediately jumped off my seat and visited one of its branches, bringing with me 2 buddies to help me review the restaurant’s specialties.
Located at Tomas Morato Cor Sct. De Guia, Quezon City, Octoboy Food Express is a Japanese Street Food Specialist that offers a variety of Japanese food, may it be Ramen, Yakiudon, Okonomiyaki, Takoyaki, and all other delicious stuff!
The Origin: How and Why Octoboy
Owned and founded by Mr. Giovanni Cheng, Octoboy’s opening of its first branch in Banawe dates back in year 2009. The research and development of the food line up, according to Mr. Cheng, started on year 2004, and aimed to provide quality Japanese food to the Filipino people at very reasonable price. According to him, he does not only want their food to taste delightful, but also to be unique and far different from what’s existing.
The prefix “octo” was obviously from “Octopus”, which tells everyone that it is one of their best ingredients, and is present in almost all of the food they serve. The whole name “Octoboy” , however, was formulated due to a series of alterations bound by legal and technical considerations.
