It's classic Japanese comfort food - basically tomato friend rice wrapped up in an omlette. Sometimes served with a side of meat or veggies. Omurice is said to have originated at a western style restaurant called Renga-tei in Tokyo's Ginza district some time around the turn of the 20th century.
Comfort food indeed. Maki from justhungry.com tells a lovely story about children's food in Japan and how this recipe brings back childhood memories. - 08 Sep 2011
thought this would make a good quick evening recipe. It actually tasted even better than I thought it would. I used ham and also some leftover frankfurters and 3 small eggs instead of two large and we loved it. Good size portions too - 20 Apr 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
