Osaka Botejyu’s Specialties

Original Source

We take the time and effort to carefully examine the ingredients, cook dozens of vegetables in a kettle for several days, wait for them to mature, and separate the supernatant from the lees to create this fruit sauce.
Now, in addition to the original sauce, we offer four types of sauces: sweet sauce, hot sauce, and spicy sauce.

Okonomiyaki Flour

This original flour is made from domestically produced flour and is layered with a secret formula to give a crispy surface and a fluffy “crunchy” texture inside when baked.


The oval shaped okonomiyaki is the origin of our particular okonomiyaki, which is made by placing two 3 mm thick, 18 cm long pieces of domestic pork belly straight down the middle of the okonomiyaki and covering the top with dough, allowing the fat from the pork to be absorbed into the dough and baked.


Osaka Botejyu is also known for its yakisoba, a special kind of noodle that is handmade thick and made in individual bowls.
Yakisoba is grilled and steamed repeatedly.

History of Osaka Botejyu

The Beginning of Osaka Botejyu

It all started around 1951 when Mr. and Mrs. Nishino ran an okonomiyaki restaurant in Tamade, Osaka, which had a reputation for delicious okonomiyaki in the neighborhood.
