Looking for Chinese-style omelet

I used to go to a diner on Clark Street north of Foster (close to where Charlie's Ale House is now) that had a No. 2 in its name for breakfast and had an omelet-like dish (eggs, bean sprouts, tomatos, onions, with or without meat) that I haven't been able to find since. It was pronounced "a-cut-a-gow-a" but I have no idea how to spell it--hence the problem of me searching for it or a place that might serve it. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks,
Joe

      I found a link to Hamburger King (on Sheffield @ Clark) and the dish is akutagawa--it's JAPANESE, by the way. I'm going to try it this weekend. Hopefully it will compare favorably to that served years ago by North Shore Diner No. 2.
