Birthplace of Omurice
In 1925, the former owner chef contemplated a new recipe for a customer who always ordered an omelette and rice. He wanted to serve his customer something new. The chef sauteed onion and mushroom with ketchup and wrapped it with a thin omelette. The dish was a big hit! That was the moment of birth of omurice, omelette + rice = omurice.
Most Popular Simple Chicken Omurice
The restaurant offers various kinds of omurice, but the most popular one is Chicken Omurice (780 yen). Chicken and mushroom fried rice is wrapped with a fluffy thin omelette served with mild homemade tomato sauce. Each element is simple yet complements each other.
Evolved Western Dish: Hayashi Omurice
The popular Hayashi Omurice (1,200 yen) is butter rice wrapped with a thin omelette served with Hayashi sauce (tomato flavor demi-glace sauce). The beef sauce goes very well with the simple omurice making this a nostalgic "Japanese Western cuisine."
