GRILL MANTEN-BOSHI’s number one signature omelette rice is one of the most recognized dishes in Japan and is undoubtedly the most sought-after item in the restaurant. For an intriguing interplay of tastes and textures of the “egg”, “rice”, and “gravy”, diners won’t want to miss this unparalleled omelette rice!
“Eggs” – There are different forms of omelette rice in the market, but GRILL MANTEN-BOSHI’s omelette rice is the first of its kind, with a silky soft and moist layer of egg and a topping of prawns, scallops and green beans. Each serving of omelette rice is made with three Ran-ou (蘭王) eggs from Oita, showing that the restaurant has spared no effort in creating this classic dish.
“Rice” – The rice base is made from eight ingredients, including bamboo shoots, onions, corn and mushrooms, which are cooked and then baked in a homemade chicken broth to uphold the Japanese culinary practice of attention to detail.
“Gravy” – GRILL MANTEN-BOSHI has three secret gravy specialties, namely omelette rice gravy (for tomato sauce-based omelette rice), Grill Manten-Boshi gravy (for burger steak) and curry gravy (for curry omelette rice). The gravy is made with a large amount of beef ribs and fresh ingredients such as carrots, onions and celery, which are simmered for up to a week with a complicated process to create a masterpiece of cooking.
GRILL MANTEN-BOSHI is not only famed for its omelette rice, it also offers a wide range of classic dishes from its Japanese branches in Hong Kong. One of the must-try dishes Crab Cream Croquette ($148), in which crabmeat is mixed with a homemade cream sauce, deep-fried to a crispy golden colour and served with a secret tomato sauce. Another signature appetiser, Gillette Burger Steak (HK$148), is made with a 7:3 ratio of Wagyu beef from Kagoshima and Kamikomi pork from Hokkaido. And Slow Cook Beef Curry Rice (HK$178), made from American beef chops cooked in a homemade sauce for 36 hours until tender, is also a long-lasting classic at GRILL MANTEN-BOSHI in Japan.
In addition to the classics, GRILL MANTEN-BOSHI (Hong Kong) also presents a series of Hong Kong limited signature dishes, including the first-ever Eel Omelette Rice (HK$248).
