Osaka Retro Travel! Shinsaibashi's Original Omurice (Omelet Rice) Restaurant - Hokkyokusei (北極星)
Japan is filled with all sorts of food. Some famous like sushi, ramen, and tempura, others unknown like sukiyaki and hoto nabe. Japanese food really began to see a change after the Meji Restoration when Japan started to import Western culture and food, creating a new trend of Japanized foreign dishes. Before then it is primarily fish, vegetables, and rice that was consumed but by Japan opening its gates it allowed dishes to be made using pork, beef, eggs, etc. One of those dishes that is strongly loved today among Japanese and foreigners of all ages is Japan's omelet rice ("omuraisu"). While in Osaka JAPANKURU ran across the apparent originator of omelet rice. So if you are a fan of this popular Japanese dish, read on~
Hokkyokusei keeps up with their tradition of making the same great omurice all these years, combining perfectly cooked fluffy egg omelet wrapped around flavored rice. This way you get the balance of both egg and rice taste. If you are a fan of different Japanese food and interested in visiting "the very first" of a part of Japanese food culture, we recommend eating at Hokkyokusei.
