RE: Korean dish
While in Korea in the early 70s (compliments of the U.S. Army), I ate everything offered and enjoyed most of it. A fairly regular treat was a dish called Oma Rice. It was fried rice with lots of vegetables, scrambled egg, and a little meat (usually shrimp or pork). It was served on a china plate, covered with a skin-thin layer of egg and delivered to our "hooch" in an insulated box with a bottle of ketchup for 100 won (25 cents)! After dining, we simply put the dirty dishes on the front step where restaurant personnel returned to pick them up. When I returned to the states (at the ripe old age of 19), I craved Oma Rice enough to track down a Korean cookbook and began a lifetime of entertaining myself in the kitchen. Thanks for triggering a great batch of memories!
