Edoya (Boruga rice)

Kita Tomomi

Aug 12, 2017

Here in the Echizen-shi Takefu district, Japan meets the West in a delicious fusion called Boruga Rice – crispy pork cutlet spread on the top of omurice with generous amounts of special sauce. The sauce can be intimidating if you care about calories, but once you get a taste of this Echizen specialty, all you want to do is get your stomach full.

Nobody knows the restaurant that first created Boruga Rice, but local people have never stopped loving it since its inception. At present, 15 restaurants serve Boruga Rice in various styles – from the most classic to a more Chinese style. You can even find Boruga Rice in a stick so it’s easier for you to eat while walking! It comes in so many varieties and colours, and they’re all absolutely irresistible. Well, I had some wonderful Boruga Rice at an udon shop recently and it only cost me 890 yen. Worth it!

越前市武生地区(ecizenshi-takeotiku)に昔からある「ボルガライス」は、オムライスの上にカツを乗せている洋風食のコラボ食品!さらにその上から特製のソースをかけてしまうので、カロリーが少々心配。しかし、お腹は確実に満たされる越前市の名物メニューなので、食べないのはもったいないですよ!

発祥のお店は定かになっていないらしく、いつのまにか地元の人たち愛されるように。現在は15店舗がボルガライスを提供しており、ベーシックなものから中華風、なんと歩きながら食べられる棒状のものなどもあります。バリエーション豊富で、食欲をそそる色鮮やかな見た目が魅力的。

江戸屋のボルガライスを味わえるうどん屋さんで890円で食べることができます。
