Now you can apply to have omurice delivered to your door with a side of “moe moe chin”.
There are a lot of hearty comfort foods in Japan that don’t always get the same level of fame and attention as internationally renowned staples like ramen and sushi. However, one beloved Japanese dish is now getting its time in the limelight, thanks to a new campaign by Japanese food processing conglomerate Nippon Ham.
The dish is omurice, which is named after its two main ingredients: omelette and rice. Usually served with a thin layer of omelette covering the rice beneath, wrapped up like a tasty parcel, omurice is a comfort food often cooked at home, but another place where it’s famously served is at Japanese maid cafes.
Not only does its comforting flavour fit in with the whole cutesy, soothing “moe” vibe at these cafes, it’s usually topped with a condiment that allows for some fun interactive play between the maid and their “master” or “mistress”.
