BOTEJYU® was founded in 1946 in the gourmet city of Tamede, Osaka as an okonomiyaki specialty restaurant. Since then, our restaurant has been supported and loved by many patrons for over 68 years. Our restaurant name is now protected throughout Japan as a registered trademark.
Our restaurant name originates from the rhythmic cooking sound of okonomiyaki. “BOTE” is the ipping sound of the okonomiyaki with the spatula and “JYU” is the sizzling sound it makes on the teppan grill. BOTEJYU® was the rst to introduce the idea of dressing okonomiyaki with mayonnaise, a practice that has become widely used since then. Today, we continue to value this “delicious sound” represented by our restaurant name by preparing each okonomiyaki with sincerity and devotion.
While preserving our long-established tradition, we are also aware of the changing and diversied needs of our customers and are striving to meet their needs by creating new restaurant brands.
