Gulu Gulu offers more than just authentic Takoyaki and Milktea that delights all ages



When I first stepped in at Gulu Gulu in its Mayon, Quezon City branch last Sunday, I was a bit surprised as group of seniors were munching on their food and drinking milk teas. Who says milk tea are only for the yuppies? It is evident that this place is good for all ages.

This branch is indeed relaxing that most of the people from its neighborhood go here to enjoy the food and its cozy ambiance. This is conceptualized in a way that customers will feel welcomed and comfortable while digging in on their dishes.  Cushioned chairs and bar stools are placed neatly. An open kitchen also serves as an entertainment where in you can watch them cook their famous takoyaki.

Those plump and filling takoyaki are really good. It has generous amount of octopus, onions, and cabbage that was rolled into balls in that takoyaki pan. It is also such a nice sight to see watching them cook it in front of you. I am so amazed by how they make this delicious treat. You can really taste the difference.
