Omelette Donburi

Japanese Food is usually the most time consuming to prepare because they often have many steps and sides dishes such as rice to the salad and main course where a lot of preparations and ingredients are needed. Today since my best friend and mum are coming over for dinner, I would like to give them a surprised by making this most simple Japanese dish that I modify from a cookbook which I borrow from library.  Omettle Donburi and Mini Potatoes Salad.
