The birthplace of Omuraisu ?

After enjoying Naniwa French foods, though I was already full, my friend wanted to go to another restaurant. Nevertheless his stomach was also full !!

関西のオムライス発祥の店とされる、北極星(`・ω・´)

Why he wanted to go to the restaurant was because this restaurant is said to be the birthplace of omuraisu.(omuraisu = rice omelette, one of yoshoku)

But there are another restaurant that is said to be the birthplace of omuraisu. The restaurant’s name is “Taimeiken”  located in Nihonbashi, Tokyo 🙂
No one can say which is true. Both of restaurant might not be the birthplace 😉
But both of restaurant have a long history and has been loved by lots of people.

We could feel the history in such a historical architecture…

He ordered a chicken omuraisu (チキンオムライス, 720 yen).

一番人気のチキンオムライス。やっぱりオムライスはチキンライスでしょう(`・ω・´)

Mostly people think omuraisu’s rice is chicken rice. Also this restaurant’s No.1 omuraisu is chicken omuraisu !
Though they prepare another rice like, scallop rice, pork rice, mushroom rice, shrimp rice and so on….

I tasted it a bit, but I felt it is tasteless because my stomach was over full !!! He said it’s so tasty….
I want to visit there again with my empty stomach …
