What’s omelette rice?
Omelette rice (or omurice) is a Japanese staple cuisine that is a perfect example of Yoshoku – a western-influenced style of cuisine. It consists of an omelette made with fried rice, often fried with ketchup for an extra tomato flavor. The rice is usually prepared first and then covered or wrapped with scrambled eggs that are thinly fried and then topped with ketchup or other sauces.
