I started watching Gourmet Girl Graffiti about a week ago. While I'm not completely enraptured by the storyline, I do think the characters are pretty cute, and as for the quality of the anime-- the animation is standard for most anime, but the coloring of it (?) is SOOOO shiny.

But what really draws me to it is how food plays such a pivotal role in this story. Ryo, the main character, is a good cook and likes to feed her friends. They certainly now how to present food beautifully in this anime, and as a big fan of food (haha), it's a feast for the eyes (ha! See what I did there?)

But that brings me to my point. In episode 3, "Rich, Drippy," the main characters prepare and eat variations of omurice. Omurice is a fusion of Western and Japanese food that entails fried rice topped with (or encased in) an omelette. I've seen omurice in anime and manga before but have never had the desire to eat it until I watched Gourmet Girl Graffiti. Since then, I've made it twice, and I think it's absolutely delicious!

This is the recipe I used: http://norecipes.com/recipe/omurice-recipe/

What are some recipes you've made that are popularly found in anime or manga?

Or what foods have you seen in anime or manga that you want to try?

Continuing from the main post, this was my second attempt at omurice. The egg broke apart a little when I flipped it on top of the rice, but at least that gives you an idea of what the rice looks like The rice is somewhat pinkish because I fried it with ketchup. You can't really tell from my photo, but the egg is cooked mostly, but still a little runny to lend some creaminess to the dish. I also added some shredded cheese, which in my opinion, makes the dish that much more flavorful and creamy.

My first attempt was more of a fail, just because I had trouble getting the egg out of the pan (but I always do when it comes to omelettes). The second attempt, it came out better, but still broke apart slightly. The difference the second time was that I used a thicker omelette and used a different (non-stick) pan

Mmm Ive made omelet rice. I make it whenever I have left over chicken. I tastes good, but my mom thinks it is peasant food

I've also tried tamagoyaki....not much to say about it other then that it tastes like sweet egg.

Onigiri.......I started making it because of fruit basket

I never follow an "anime recipe". That sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Think you need rice flour to make okonomiyaki (just like they serve at Ucchan's!), and there's a unique sauce that goes with it, but I've had to settle for regular flour and hoisin sauce.
Not too bad, considering, and can come pretty close with egg, flour, chicken broth, seafood and cabbage.

I've made okonomiyaki, sushi, yakisoba etc. but by far the most successful anime food I've made is Oyakodon and Gyudon (inspired by Food Wars haha)

I TOTALLY recommend that anyone interested in Japanese food tries making oyako-don - it is INCREDIBLY EASY and fast and really tasty. Only problem is it doesn't look as nice as sushi

This recipe for oyako-don is perfect btw - http://www.justonecookbook.com/oyakodon/

More like anime characters cook things that I've made.

I haven't really seen any original anime cooking that seemed appetizing enough for me to take a swing at.

Tip for omuraisu: Beat the egg and make sure to spread it over the pan so that it is thin after it is cooked. It should be thin enough to cook thoroughly without taking forever and without you needing to flip it over. Cook it in a separate nonstick pan so you can put it onto the rice (which should be sitting on a plate). It takes a few tries to get the portions right but it's much easier than using one pan for both the rice and the egg.

Since the egg is completely cooked, you can sort of just scoot it from the pan to the plate without actually needing to flip the egg over. If, for some reason, you want to flip, I find it easier to flip by just using the pan and flicking your wrist. Utensils tend to break the egg.
