After a former flight attendant decided to leave the airline industry aside and open up an omelet rice shop, she has earned the nickname "omelet rice mommy" from the numerous children who love to frequent her store. Her Omelet Rice Meal (NT$100) along with Cheese and Ham Omelet Rice, which comes with fries, chicken nuggets and pudding for dessert, are the most popular choices here. If you have a bigger appetite, go for the King Size Omelet Rice (NT$100). Her rice is made by wrapping the eggs up with butter and then sauteeing them with rice, onions and ketchup. Other well-liked dishes include Curry Pork Chop Omelet Rice (NT$120), and the grilled, Boneless Teriyaki Chicken with Omelet Rice (NT$120), which is smeared with Japanese teriyaki sauce. "Mommy" even writes fun characters or makes designs with the ketchup when she serves the food. She's sometimes asked to do popular messages like "Happy Birthday," or even "Marry Me". With freshly squeezed juice and delivery for orders NT$500 or more, this omelet rice place is a good option for the whole family. --By Kyle Lee, translated by Ann Lee, photos by Eric Tsao

The two chefs at Sheng Jing Wu both have ample experience in the kitchen-one used to work in a hotel making Chinese-style cuisine and the other one did his internship to become a professional chef at an omelet rice shop in Japan. When they first decided to open up this joint, their idea was to combine the essence of Chinese and Japanese cuisine. Now, judging by the number of customers they have each day, their venture is a success. Apart from traditional Japanese flavors, the chefs utilize Chinese cooking techniques and even Western ingredients to make unique omelet rice. Chinese Mapo Tofu with Omelet Rice (NT$129), a true fusion dish, is made with sauteed chili powder and eggs, as well as other ingredients like tomato and onion. Their Daily Special (NT$109), can include things like Black Pepper Pork Strips with Omelet Rice, or Stewed Pork Ballin Brown Sauce with Omelet Rice. For a change, try omelet noodles, made with spaghetti meatballs or popular Japanese dishes like the Fried Pork Chop (NT$129), which comes with a fruity curry sauce. --By Kyle Lee, translated by Ann Lee, photos by Eric Tsao

Yokohama Omelet Rice

Story has it that the daughter of Yokohama Omelet Rice's owner met her better half, a Japanese native, while studying in Australia. Since then, the son-in-law has been running his own omelet rice shop for over a decade, and the marriage has given the owner the opportunity to bring the wonderful flavor of this Japanese dish to Taipei. The Omelet Rice (NT$100) here is created by frying plain rice with ketchup, while the eggs are cooked golden-brown and omelet style with margarine and canola oil. A special sauce, made with pork stock, vegetables, fruit vinegar and red wine, accompanies the rice. Furthermore, Yokohama tries to keep grease to a minimum and make their food a little healthier. Instead of frying their Grilled Chicken Drumstick Omelet Rice (NT$150), they bake it in a German digital oven--they've even been certified by the health center at NTNU as one of Taipei's "Healthy Restaurants". Apart from the omelet rice, which is only served on weekends and holidays, they also serve Japanese curries. --By Kyle Lee, translated by Ann Lee, photos by Eric Tsao

Besides running his restaurant, the young hip owner of Double Six, who has a background in design, collects antique fans, sofas and all kinds of other retro-style goodies which end up on the walls and corners of the place. Besides the 1970s ambiance, you can come here for the main event-their omelet rice. The selection of omelet rice is diverse enough that, when it comes to custom-ordering their meal, the customer's only problem is too many choices. For set meals, choose from five main courses and the five different sauces, which also come with omelet rice, a drink and dessert afterwards (NT$130/dine-in, NT$110/take-out). The Mushroom and Cream Sauce is the most popular choice here and it goes perfectly with their fried hamburger patty. Other good choices are the Fried Pork Chop with salsa and Fish Strips with Japanese Vinegar Dressing. If you're not keen on that sauce, you can also try the Japanese-style Black Vinegar with Omelet Rice. --By Kyle Lee, translated by Ann Lee, photos by Eric Tsao
