Kanitama-don is a Japanese style omelette filled with crab meat served on a bed of rice. This dish definitely has its Chinese origins and evolved from the popular egg foo young

  • 1/4 cup bamboo shoots (rinsed and julienned)
  • 1/4 cup spring onions, chopped

  • freshly ground black pepper



  • freshly cooked jasmine rice
  • oil for frying


  1. In a sauce pan combine together chicken stock, soy sauce, sake, sugar and potato starch mix it well then place on stove top. Bring to a boil and simmer until sauce thickens, add the green peas and enoki mushrooms and cook for a minute. Turn off heat then set it aside.
