Oyacodone is a kind of traditional JapaneseDonburi, a round bowl of rice, supplemented with various ingredients, from a piece of pork or beef to eel. According to the sources, the oyacodon was invented in Osaka around 1900, throwing pieces of chicken with spring onions and filling them with eggs.

The name of the dish, by the way, literally means in Japanese "mother and child"


Of course, because the mother (the chicken) is preparing with the baby (egg), and not because this dish for breakfast expressed the care and love of the mother for her children.
