Hong Kong Food News & Reviews

DONDONYA's new Nagoya Cochin Oyakodon (HK$78) does the remarkable, reinventing the common Japanese chicken and egg bowl into a delicacy. You are seriously missing out if you pass on this Japanese rice bowl that's basically deemed one of the top five in Japan this year.


We Hong Kong diners might not be familiar with the Donburi Senshuken, but it is a famous competition held annually in the Japan that'll pick out the best Japanese rice bowl within the country.  In concurrence with the Year of the Rooster--Torikai entered the competition with their Nagoya Cochin Oyakodon and was chosen as one of the top five among all competitors countrywide.


The Nagoya Cochin, one of the two main ingredients to the bowl, is one of Japan's top three renowned pure free-range chicken breeds, famous for its richness in flavour and the firmness of its meat. Covering the fragrant Japanese rice are a layer of egg, topped with a raw egg yolk at the centre.  Prepared with special attention paid to getting the timing just right, this remarkable chicken and egg bowl is born.


Dig your spoon into the rice through the juicy layer of egg and sample the taste first, before poking through the yoke in the middle, and mixing it so that the yoke and sauce cover each perfectly cooked grain of rice. Enjoy another spoonful of rice with a piece of tender, aromatic chicken thigh meat. Take your time to savour each spoonful of this substantial bowl of deliciousness made with the simplest yet precious ingredients.


Torikai generously shared the recipe of their place-winning dish with DONDONYA, so that we get to try out this unusual chicken and egg bowl without having to fly to Japan. The Nagoya Cochin Oyakodon is only available for a limited time, so don't dawdle and try it out now.
