Omelette rice with Kuro Sengoku soybeans! Omurice specialty restaurant, Gohan-ya Momotou (rice shop), Higashi-ku, Sapporo

Friday, May 10, 2024

Located in a residential area near Okadama Airport in Sapporo's Higashi Ward, the omelet specialty restaurant "Gohan-ya Momotou" is marked by a yellow banner with the word "omelet" written in red.

This time, the choice menu of "Kuro Sengoku Soy Rice" for omelette rice is newly introduced! We visited with Mr. Yuji Takada, Executive Director, Kuro Sengoku Business Cooperative Association.

Photography of the interior and menu is prohibited, but we received special permission to photograph this time.

The small wooden shed-style handmade front door installed at the entrance is super impactful! Parking is available for three cars in front of the restaurant.

The omelette rice specialty restaurant "Gohan-ya Momo Momo" is run by the owner-chef Mamiko Tateno, who has been running the restaurant by herself for 20 years since its opening in November 2004.

Special omelette rice using carefully selected ingredients

  1. Eggs: "Tokibi Eggs" from Sakai Farm in Kuriyama-cho
    Eggs, an important element for an omelet specialty restaurant, are eggs from Sakai Farm in Kuriyama Town. These "sugarcane eggs" are from chickens that have grown up eating sugarcane from the local town of Kuriyama!
  2. Kelp: "Habomai Kelp" from Nemuro
    Tatsuno's family is a kelp fisherman in Nemuro City's Himai district for four generations.
  3. Salt: Australian rough salt
    Rough salt traded directly to the site by the concerned parties. Before use, the salt is roasted in advance to bring out the sweetness of the salt for cooking.

The trinity of "softness," "purple hue of rice," and "flavor" of Kuro Sengoku Soybean Boiled Beans

The relationship between Executive Director Takada and Owner Tatsuno started through X (formerly Twitter) and led to their relationship with Kuro Sengoku Soybeans.

The health-conscious owner, Tatsuno, has been focusing on Kuro Sengoku soybeans and challenged himself to create a menu of rice with Kuro Sengoku soybeans, which has high nutritional benefits!

After repeated trial and error on the hardness of the Kuro Sengoku soybeans, the color of the rice, and how to bring out the flavor, the current Kuro Sengoku rice was finally arrived at.

The three elements of "softness" of Kuro Sengoku soybean boiled beans, "purple hue" of rice, and "delicious taste" are combined to create the finest Kuro Sengoku rice!

The key point is the order in which the water is added to the rice. By soaking the Kuro Sengoku soybeans and adding the colored water to the rice first, the color and flavor of the Kuro Sengoku soybeans will permeate the rice.

Then, the insufficient water is added and rice is cooked with kombu, vinegar, sake, and salt. As I experimented with various methods, I was able to cook the beans to the perfect softness and coloring of the rice," said owner Tatsuno.

Creative Omelet Menu

  • A wide variety of menu items are available, including omelette pork rice (garlic rice, kimchi rice, cheese rice), cheese cream omelette rice (red cheese cream omelette rice, white cheese cream omelette rice, spicy cheese cream omelette rice), and more.
  • Rice choices include pilaf, ketchup, garlic rice, and, depending on the type of omu-rice, kuro-sengoku takikomi-gohan (rice cooked with kuro-sengoku).
  • Five serving sizes can be selected: S, M, L, medium, and large (price is added depending on the size)!

The soft texture, sweetness, and flavor of Kuro Sengoku soybeans are a perfect match for the fluffy egg! The sauce with pork and vegetables is perfectly blended with the pork and vegetables to create a never-before-seen taste!
