Oyakodon | Japanese chicken, rice and egg bowl

Japan next on ch(eat) around the world, sure I need Sunday lunch and there is a Japanese restaurant in town…handy!

this is a Oyakodon:-

‘literally “parent-and-child donburi”, is a Japanese rice bowl dish, in which chicken, egg, sliced scallion and other ingredients are all simmered together in a kind of soup that is made with soy sauce and stock, and then served on top of a large bowl of rice.’

I’d say it was getting bit like a risotto with creamy scrambled egg in top.

I like the wee black pot and whatever was in it,
gave chopsticks a go but then gave up as I’d be there all day trying to eat it

Apparently the Paul Simon song ‘Mother and Child Reunion’ got it’s name from a similar dish on a Chinese restaurant menu.

I'll be away on holidays from The Wee Shed until the 21nd May '24 so any orders received between now and then will be posted on the 22nd May.
