Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is a Japanese savoury pancake that consists of batter and cabbage and contains a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning "what you like" or "what you want", and yaki meaning "grilled" or "cooked".

Toppings and ingredients differ a lot according to the region and may include meat, seafood, corn, cheese, wasabi or red ginger. Okonomiyaki is usually stuffed with octopus, shrimp, pork, yam or kimchi.

Okonomiyaki can be classified as a fast food, since there are many vendors who sell it. It can also be served in restaurants that specialize in the dish.

Though this dish is more popular in the west, particularly the cities of Hiroshima and Osaka, it is also available all over Japan, including Tokyo.
