Once in a while, I can find something which is well known worldwide but popular mainly only in Japan. Omelette rice is one of them. 

Today, I went to a supermarket after work to buy something to eat.  In Japan, there are so many deli foods in the shops and we have so many options.  I was thinking of buying some sushi but I changed my mind when I found omelette rice there.

Omelette rice is a western food from Japan.  I was very surprised the first time I heard that. Usually. lightly fry the beaten egg in a frying pan and wrap the seasoned rice, like ketchup rice.  It looks very “western” and I thought it was from Europe or somewhere.
