ISO Best Omurice

I've been randomly craving omurice (well not so random cos I've been watching doramas) ...
but I can't seem to find a good one around here :(
I tried Mitsuwa on Centinela, even the spaghetti omelette at Spoon House, but nothing is satisfying my craving ...

if possible I want an omurice that has a half-cooked omelette, so that when you cut it the eggs will be runny :)
with chicken fried rice inside, and drizzled with demi glace sauce outside .....

If anyone has a lead for me, pls pls let me know! Thanks!

  1. On the west side, try Blue Marlin on Olympic and Sawtelle. They have several types that run fairly expensive ($10-$14), but they are quite good. The quality of the sauce and all the ingredients is good. Generous amounts of everything, sauce, eggs, and whatever protein you choose. Very tasty and filling dish, a definite candidate for a take out box and a great breakfast the next day :)

    1. Mmm Zombie's like Omurice ;)

      Who has the best Omurice around these days? I know JiST has one any other more old fashioned versions around? e.g. ketchup chicken fried rice, soft-set omelet.. A quick google search mostly brings up a closed restaurant in Korea Town (Curry Hyang).

        jist is probably the best right now.

        ktown plaza and galleria food courts both have pretty good ones.

          Hit up jist for a late b'fast. I like it, really good stumptown coffee. Chashu potatoes were a bit too sweet but very addicting. The Omurice was good, but I just kept thinking about the fried rice at Men Oh Ramen around the corner. It did satisfy the craving though.

          I'll def be back.

      2. I found new place for omurice.


        Good shit, end it with a really great plate of brick toast. Cheeky presentation plating, to boot.

          Did you get the Nutella rick toast?

        2. I LOVE Omurice. The one at JiSt is very good.

          But my absolute favorite one is from Foo Foo Tei
