Omuraisu!

Both my boys; the dad & son, sure love eating omuraisu. They like Nasi Pattaya too which, in a way is pretty similar to omuraisu. But ask Raimie which one he likes better, he'll answer omuraisu!

Omuraisu with tomato sauce
Omuraisu (omu from "omelette" and raisu from "rice") is basically fried rice (most often with diced chicken and onion) seasoned with salt, pepper, and ketchup, then wrapped in a thin, sweet omelette.

Nasi Pattaya is also fried rice (with chicken, prawn and maybe frozen mixed vege thrown in) wrapped in omelette and is also slathered with ketchup/chilli sauce on top.

I've been meaning to cook omuraisu at home, but somehow managed to not do it yet. ^^

Which one of the above would you like to have?

  2. @levian,

  5. Both are nice but I like nasi Pattaya for the spiciness. Chinese fried rice includes the egg in the fried rice itself in addition to a combo of some of these - onions, garlic, ginger, mixed frozen veggies, slices of Chinese sausage, salted fish as well as garnished with the smaller version of anchovies. Yum!

  6. I love omrice too and it is very easy to make at home. I prefer mine drizzled with tomato sauce over the omelette and garnished with fresh parsley.

  15. hahaha!! thanks for reminding me the Thai style omuraisu - our infamous Nasi Pattaya~~ :D

  16. but i would think omuraisu taste nicer because the egg that wraps the rice is more substance and tastier..

    ReplyDelete
  17. and oh, i love that with tomato gravy too, it enhances the taste of the whole dish..

  18. @SK,
    Those omuraisu's eggs sure are denser than Nasi Pattaya. :)

    I actually prefer if its a "meato sauce" meat sauce rather than just plain tomato gravy. :)

    And am thinking of going to Pasta Zanmai tomorrow. See whether we'll another another plate of omuraisu or not. XD
