Although I mostly stick to vegetarian options, oyakodon is one of those dishes I continually make an exception for. I fell in love with this savory chicken and egg dish while living in Tokyo, Japan for 18 months (which I made a graphic novel about and you can read here!). It was always a bit greasy at restaurants, so I love the homemade version much better!
Bento box with oyakodon, white rice, and broccoli salad (broccoli with mayo dressing, veggie bacon, raisins, and sunflower seeds).
親子丼定食 // Oyakodon Set Lunch This is one of my fallback comfort food in Japan. Don means rice bowl, and oyako “parent and child,” sooo, as you may have surmised, this is chicken and egg over rice. So tasty, and only mildly unsettling.
