Oyakodon is one of the popular Japanese dishes! Oyakodon literally means "parent-and-child" bowl, because they use chicken and egg and cook them together. This might sound cruel, but it actually tastes really good. It usually includes sliced onions, which adds sweet flavor to savory oyakodon. All of these ingredients are simmered with a soup made from soy sauce and stock, which later is put on a bowl of rice.

This is one of the popular Japanese dishes, and there are restaurants where you can try authentic Oyakodon. So check the following places out!
