What is Omurice

Omurice is a popular Japanese comfort food which consists of ketchup flavored fried rice wrapped in or covered with eggs. "Omu" comes from the egg dish "omelet". It can be served at both casual and nice restaurants, and also often cooked home.

The basic omurice consists of simple ingredients, eggs, chicken, vegetables, rice, ketchup, and sauce. The rice is often wrapped with eggs or topped with soft-cooked omelet which later is sliced in the middle to open (called "tampopo omurice"). When they make omurice at home, eggs are usually cooked and just slid over the rice because it is much easier.
