For cheese lovers, the omurice is irresistible!

The main component of the dish’s sauce is mozzarella cheese from Hokkaido. Combining it with cheddar and Parmesan brings out a rich flavor.

To finish, powdered Grana Padano cheese is sprinkled on top and then the omelette is seared. The searing adds a savory aroma to the cheese.

The rice, seasoned with tomato sauce, is also exquisite.

By deliberately using a sauce that tones down the tartness of the tomatoes, the rice has a gentle flavor. It doesn’t interfere with the creamy richness of the cheese sauce, making them a perfect match.

There’s a particular attention to detail in making the omelette as well.

The beaten egg mixture, stirred in a pan until it becomes scrambled egg-like, is left to rest for a while. This results in a smooth surface.

When cut with a knife, a half-boiled egg is revealed from the inside of the omelette.

The gooey, half-boiled egg and cheese sauce create quite the blissful texture.

When savored fully coated with the generous amount of cheese sauce, it will definitely put you in a luxurious mood!

The flavor is loved by cheese enthusiasts and appeals to a wide range of people, from adults to children.

The standout feature of Picoti Picota’s cutlet is its thickness.

After being fried for two minutes, the cutlet is lifted from the oil and cooked through residual heat. Then, it undergoes an additional five-minute frying to achieve a crispy texture on the surface.

By frying it twice, the cutlet is thoroughly cooked while retaining its juiciness. It’s a cutlet that oozes meat juices when you bite into it.

Breadcrumbs mixed with herbs like oregano add a delightful aroma, so be sure to pay attention.

Dipping the cutlet in sauce adds sweetness and richness, enhancing the depth of flavor.

For the ohitsu gohan, you can choose between the standard white rice and a nutrition-rich fifteen-grain rice.

Refills of rice are free, and you can switch between white rice for the first serving and fifteen-grain rice for the second serving, changing the type midway through your meal.
