"Tenshin donburi." Chinese-style donburi with omelet and a thick sauce. 天津丼

Rice covered by an egg omelet made with crab, onions and green peas (kanitama). A thick starchy sauce covers the top. Sometimes also finely-chopped spring onions and shiitake mushrooms are added.

The sauce is different for each individual shop: in the Kanto a sauce based on tomato ketchup with vinegar is popular, while in the Kansai sauces based on soy sauce are common.

This dish is also called Tenshin-han (天津飯).
