Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the author's experiences when she first tasted 'The First Grade Oyako-Donburi'. While shopping with her father, they decided to have 'Oyako-Donburi', a bowl of rice with chicken and eggs, at 'Tamahide', a Japanese restaurant of long standing at Nin-gyo-cho, one of the busiest parts in Tokyo. The most popular menu there was 'The Original Oyako-Donburi', but they ordered 'The First Grade OyakoDonburi', which was higher in price. In "The First Grade", rice is topped by soft-boiled eggs with soup, while in "The Original", rice is topped by hard-boiled eggs, in an old-fashioned way. The First Grade Oyako-Donburi is cooked by the chef himself who is preceded by seven masters, said her father. That may be the reason why 'The First Grade' is higher in price. The author believes 'The First Grade Oyako-Donburi' is superb and people should never have it in any place other than 'Tamahide'.
