Volga rice

Volga rice (sometimes boruga rice) is a fried rice dish popular in Echizen, Fukui Prefecture, Japan. Sometimes classed as one of the Three Delicacies of Echizen alongside oroshi soba and ekimae chuka soba,[1] it is a variant of omurice[2] made of a base of fried rice which is then topped with an omelet and crumb-covered pork cutlet; the whole is then covered in rich sauce.[3] There is no proven explanation for the name "Volga rice", though there are various theories.[4]
