Omurice(オムライス Omu-raisu), it's basically an omelet served with rice(veggie and chicken mixed) and ketchup. Omu and Raisu words come from the combination of omelet and rice words.

This dish can be found in Korean Gimbap restaurants as 오므라이스 (omeuraiseu).


People who love Japanese culture or watches anime a lot probably saw this dish at maid cafe scenes. Children and also adults love to write messages on the omurice with ketchup.
