If you look for fun under the sun this is a place.
It isn’t a beach, it is Omurice Kichi Kichi in Kyoto an energetic, loud and action driven culinary counter experience and performance. The Omurice is the rice topped by a fresh omelette and topped with Kichi, a dark rich sauce.
I laughed to myself, sipping my ice cold creamy Yebisu, I was missing these kinds of unique Japanese experiences which only make your reminisce. Its not about the food, it is more about getting a seat at the counter to see the show and enjoy a menu of 10 simple dishes., i.e. salad, croquettes, fried cutlet, and not much more: https://kichikichi.comand getting a reservation is simple, and requires no credit card – the way it used to be, the donor system.
You go onto the website and see the dates and times available and send and reserve. You may not get an answer but the reservation is done – but son’t be late or your seat will be gone.
Omurice is a Japanese word for “omelet and rice” and is an omelet falls over the fried rice and is usually topped with ketchup. This time he uses a demi-glaze and it is part of his signature made by using Espagnole sauce, a basic brown sauce, and is one of Auguste Escoffier’s five mother sauces of classic French cooking.
It’s 2-Chome, Tokyo’s wild and weird cross over between the fascination of taking a simple dish, rice and egg and turning it into an extravaganza isn’t such a new thing, yet memorable. Thanks for telling me about it Alberto *__~
