Jin-Zai [CLOSED]

Jin-Zai brings the authentic Japanese takoyaki experience in Iloilo for Ilonggos to enjoy. They pledge that they only use fresh Octopus, vegetables and imported Japanese ingredients. Takoyaki is a popular street food from Japan. It comes with bits of octopus and dough inside a slightly crispy shell, garnished with their special takoyaki sauce.

What We Had

We had their Takoyaki. We also tried their katsudon.

Katsudon is a popular Japanese food, a bowl of rice topped with a deep-fried pork cutlet, egg, vegetables, and condiments.


Their kitchen area is covered with glass so customers can have a full-view of how the Takoyaki are being cooked from start to finish and the other meals also. You can absolutely do this while waiting for your orders.

How to Get There

As mentioned, this is located inside Festive Walk Mall Iloilo. The most convenient ride is Mandurriao SM City and town routed jeepneys such as San Miguel, Leon and Alimodian. Jaro Mandurriao is also passing at the back side of the mall and now, few Oton jeepneys are also passing by Megaworld areas.

The said branch have tables and chairs so you can enjoy your order in the place with your friends or companions.

Aside from Jin Zai, there is also a good number of Japanese food places around Iloilo City where you can have a taste of Japan such as ramen, gyoza and sushi. Except Takoyaki, you can also explore other Japanese restaurants whenever you are in the mood for some Japanese.
