What is "omurice"?
Omurice is an omelette containing fried rice that's served accompanied by whatever vegies, 'shrooms, meat and condiments you crave at a cafe near my office called Zowa. I had the chilli chicken version and it was delish – a combo of flavours that reminded me of eating at the Chili’s Mexican chain (there's an outlet in Penrith). DL had his with boscaiola sauce. He seemed similarly chuffed, though he later commented it was “very rich” and not a dish he could have often. Each meal cost about $14 and also came with a small portion of salad. Relatively pricey, but it’s nice to have a new lunching venue. According to a sign on Zowa’s wall, omurice cafes are popular throughout Japan and Korea. I can see why. There’s something oddly cool about cutting into a fluffy omelette and having rice spill out.
