Originated in Japan, omurice has become a popular dish across east Asia


Rice omelette, also called omurice, is a contemporary Japanese dish consisting of an omelet made with fried rice. It is a popular dish commonly cooked at home and can be found at many western style diners and restaurants. It is not only popular in Japan but also in China and Korea.


The dish typically consists of chicken rice (rice pan-fried with ketchup and chicken) wrapped in a thin sheet of fried egg. The ingredients that flavor the rice vary. Often, the rice is fried with various meats (but typically chicken) and/or vegetables, and can be flavored with beef stock, ketchup, demi-glace white sauce or just salt and pepper. Sometimes, the rice is replaced with fried noodles.



Duo Duo Love provides a series of rice omelette


In Xiamen, there is a good restaurant to enjoy rice omelette called Duo Duo Love. They serve upward of 30 kinds of rice omelette such as fried pork curry rice omelette, Thai spicy chicken rice omelette and black pepper beef rice omelette.


Their drinks also get good reviews from customers, especially their pearl milk tea and coffee. The environment is pleasing and relatively quiet and appropriate for chatting.


It is a good restaurant for foreigners. Many foreigners are a little bit afraid to venture into Chinese looking restaurants for fear of being in a non-English environment involving all Chinese menus (without pictures!), staff and guests all conversing passionately in Mandarin or some other completely unrecognizable dialect. But in Duo Duo Love, this is no longer a problem as the menus are all in English with pictures.
