CoCoichi is the first Japanese curry specialty store to open in Cebu Island.
The restaurant is full of Filipinos everyday. What is so popular?
This time I have actually eaten it twice, so I would like to introduce the curry of CoCoichi. Not only can you choose the amount and spiciness of the rice, but you can choose a wide range of toppings, which is a good deal.
Set, too. Also, the feature is that you can choose not only white rice but also 15 grain rice.
It is open from 10 AM, and there is no break, so you can go to eat curry anytime.
CoCoichi curry location of Cebu
CoCoichi is here.
It is located in a commercial area called “Bonifacio District (Bonifacio)”. Grab Taxi points to Bonifacio District.
Take a taxi to Bonifacio District, the Gagfa IT Center, or Sarossa Hotel. It takes about 3 minutes on foot from Sarossa Hotel.
Language schools are within walking distance of the Idea Academia and ECC Cebu schools.
Bonifacio District has plenty of other restaurants and cafes to recommend. The detailed store is written at the end, so please take a look there.
CoCoichi curry Cebu exterior and interior
The exterior is here. It is completely glass-walled and you can see the inside.
I went there imagining cocoichi in Japan, so I was surprised by the size of the shop! It’s very big. It’s an ordinary restaurant. It has an atmosphere that is easy to enter, so I think I can go by myself.
Samples are displayed in front of the shop. This is eye-catching! Many people were worried about this sample. There was no Japanese curry specialty store in Cebu, so I think there is something curious about it.
Then let’s go inside. When you enter the store, you will hear a lively “Welcome!”.
There is a counter just inside. It’s an open kitchen, so it’ll be fun to watch them being made.
There are decorative plants on the walls and ceiling, so it’s very stylish! It’s a really beautiful store.
There are many seats. There is a capacity of about 60 people.
The warmth of bricks and wood is good ~
It is said that it is very crowded and full at night, but you can spend a relaxing time in the daytime or in the time zone slightly shifted from the peak. I don’t have time to rest, so it’s helpful that I can go to eat curry anytime.

CoCoichi Curry Cebu Cuisine
Then, I will introduce the dishes I actually ordered! First of all, the service water is not delicious to be honest. I strongly recommend ordering a drink as a set.
Each table has fukujinzuke and hot spices. All-you-can-add fukujinzuke! Thank you.
It is a mini salad of the set. There are 2 kinds of dressings, one is Japanese sauce and the other is not clear lol. I couldn’t understand it no matter how many times I asked. …。
Soup of the day. On this day, I had consomme with carrots, pork, potatoes and onions.
I ordered Calamanci iced tea for drink. I was wondering what it tastes like, but it’s a normal lemon tea.
I tried adding a drink, salad and soup to the + 110 p set. You can make a set with this much for about 240 yen, so you should make it a set.
I ordered vegetable curry 240 grams, the amount of rice was the same, and the spiciness was “Normal”.
The potatoes, carrots, asparagus, and onions are cut into large chunks and are filling.
Curry is rather spicy. My impression is that the rice is a little soft. It’s not a joke, though. The price is 240 pages, so it’s about 530 yen.
I visited again the next day. + 90 pages 2 set with orange juice.
This time I ordered a 360 p beef omelet from hashed beef. I changed the rice to 5 grain rice + 30 P. You can’t choose the spiciness of hashed beef.
It looks delicious!! And when I opened the inside, I found five grain rice. It was different from white rice, and the hardness of rice was good! The meat is soft and very mild and delicious. I recommend this because the egg is fluffy and thick!
Loin cutlet omelet 360p.
This is a version of vegetable and spinach curry 300 p, with rice replaced with 15 grain rice.
Fried chicken curry 290p.
Naan ala carte 250 pieces. Naan seems to be frozen and not very tasty. It’s expensive at 250 P, so it might be better not to order it.
I hope the quality of white rice will improve in the future. If that is the case, it might be better to change to fifteen grain rice. Curry is delicious, but I recommend hashed beef for those who don’t like spicy food.
You can pay by credit card as well as cash. There is a sign for all cards, but I have checked only VISA card. A 10% service charge will be added to your bill.
Curry and salad are available for takeout.
Opening hours: 10: 00 ~ 23: 00
