Omurice Keisuke at Bugis+ is the 17th outlet under the Keisuke Group. It is helmed by chef Keisuke Takeda, whose accolades include being crowned the Ramen Champion at the 2011 Tokyo Ramen Championships.

Omurice is a Western-influenced Japanese dish that consists of a wrapped omelette (omu) over Western fried rice with ketchup.

The key to good omurice is the egg and Omurice Keisuke's version ($9.90++, above) features the chef's own locally farmed eggs from hens fed with omega-rich grains.

There is also the option to customise your omurice meal by choosing from a range of sauces such as wafu, demi-glace, creamy white sauce or chilli tomato sauce.

Add $2++ for mozzarella or cheddar cheese which will be melted over your main dish.

For noodle or pasta lovers, try the Neapolitan or Mentaiko Spaghetti ($9.90++).

Main dishes come with potato salad, coleslaw, green salad or spinach and miso soup.

Side dishes ($2++ to $3++ each) such as deep-fried chicken wing, ebi-fried, teriyaki chicken hamburg and pork spare ribs are also available.

Where: 04-01 Bugis+, 201 Victoria Street

Open: 11.30am to 10pm daily
