This is the sequel menu of another kind of “Donburi.” OK. Now you know this is a rice bowl with something over the rice, don’t you? Yes, “Oyako” is over the rice. What, in the world, does “Oyako” mean? It means “parent” and “child” – chicken (parent) and eggs (child). Of course, not just that “oyako” is over the rice, but all other ingredients are along with “oyako.”
