"My mother taught me to make this recipe. It is a popular lunch dish, but is not traditional Japanese cooking. It is easy to make, but you dirty four pans and bowls."

"Thank you so much for posting this recipe. Many years ago, I had Japanese roomates that made this for me and I recently just had a craving for it again. I've searched the internet for the Omu Rice recipe, and yours was the best (& simpliest!) out there. We just had it last night and it was delicious. We used a fresh red pepper from our vegetable garden. I sauteed the vegetables in sesame oil. I didn't have any tomato paste, so I used soy sauce. I'm going to try it again soon with tomato paste. It was great!"
"no biases here, i tried it after watching the movie Tengoku wa Matte Kureru or Heaven Can Wait. Maybe... the guy was talking about how delicious the japanese rice omelette is, so I just had to try it myself! Oh boy, coming from someone who's not into omelettes, this is just spectacular and the presentation is just so neat. It's like having eggs with fried rice but the rice is in the egg. And I like it so much that 1 serving isn't enough! Only subsitute I did, was that I used shredded chicken and cubed meatloafs instead of bacon (didn't have it, but I'm sure bacon is better) and sugar substitute. Thank you for a wonderful recipe. arigato! It's a keeper!"
"I must admit a bias here -- chicken salt (Yuri) was one of our exchange students. She got a taste of cooking while at our house two years ago. She paid us a recent visit and showed off her cooking skills. This recipe is a delicious cross between fried rice and omelette. I have posted a series of photos. The main one shows the finished result. The others show the steps along the way. Thanks Yuri for a great light meal! P.S. For those of you who follow the antics of Auntie Esther (AKA she who does not eat rice) -- she polished off her omelette without even mentioning the rice."
