[Anime Culture Monday] Anime Recipes – Morning Set: Egg Version from Isekai Shokudou

Welcome back to another delicious installment of Anime Recipes where we sink our teeth into the latest delicious food that we see rolling across our screens. Now that Isekai Shokudou is on air, there are so many delectable dishes showing on our screens that are leaving us drooling and begging for more. Actually just kidding, we have found the dish we want to do first and it comes from the very first episode! It is the morning set dish. Now we say eggs version, and we will explain why, but first, let’s take a look at how we have gotten to this point.

After being rejected by the human world for her otherworldly appearance, which really is not all that shocking and is rather cute, Aletta is forced to survive in a society that does not really welcome her. After sleeping outdoors one night with no food, Aletta thinks about how hungry she is. This allows the door to a restaurant from another world to appear. Walking in, she finds herself in a kitchen and there is a sauce on the stove. After helping herself to it, Tenshu, the master walks in. At first surprised, he is moved by her story and offers to cook her a meal. Thus, we are introduced to the second dish of the episode, morning set. Morning set is really an amalgamation of western food that we see in everyday life. It’s just not something that we might expect together completely with breakfast. Let’s dive right on into this refreshing, delicious breakfast.

Morning Set: Egg Version from Isekai Shokudou

Morning set can actually come in a variety of setups in Japan and typically, this is something that you find in a café to go with your breakfast. It hails from Nagoya, which is close to Osaka, the kitchen of Japan. There in Nagoya, nestled between Tokyo and Osaka, this now national phenomenon, was born. It is hard to say who made it first, but looking above, you can see arguably the most popular national chain’s version. Komeda is a coffee chain known for serving up okay coffee at best, but their morning sets are delicious and while they may have stores all across the nation of Japan, there will almost always be a line to get in. What comes with coffee when you order is either an egg or scrambled eggs that you spread on bread.

We will hold off on the special Nagoya-born variation just in case it makes an appearance later on in Isekai Shokudou. The next part that usually comes is a dollop of potato salad, shredded cabbage, sliced cucumbers and sliced tomatoes. The goal is to not only enjoy breakfast but relax during it as well. If you are ever in Japan, we recommend trying out a morning set or four! Aletta loves it and we know that you will too, so let’s dive on in.

What You Will Need:

coffee
Your choice of a cup

egg
1

cherry tomatoes
2-5

slice of bread
1

butter
1 dollop

cabbage
1 leaf

bacon
A couple slices

sweet corn
2 tablespoons

1 dollop

Optional Notes:

Really this is entirely up to you how you want to make it. There are so many variations that come with morning set, that it is impossible to list them all up. If you are not feeling something or you are just not in the mood to eat certain items on the list for breakfast, then swap them out for others! This recipe only deviates slightly from the original morning set that you can find in cafes like we mentioned in that it includes bacon. Of course, if you are a vegetarian, feel free to swap it and the egg out for something else. Nothing is set in stone and your experience will not be decreased!


How to Cook It:

  1. 1

    First things first, you need to scramble your egg. Now, we recommend that you crack it in a glass and put a little milk, or milk alternative, in to make it a little more fluffy than usual, but the choice is yours to simply crack it in the frying pan.
  2. 2

    Once the egg is done, cook your bacon in the same frying pan quickly.
  3. 3

    Place the bacon on a plate and the eggs on top of that. Set aside.
  4. 4

    Next up, is you need to cut your cabbage leaf thinly. Shredded is the ideal goal you want to go for.
  5. 5

    Slice a few slices of a cucumber up and wash your cherry tomatoes. If you do not have a cherry tomato, a small regular one will do. Simply cut it into fourths or eighths.
  6. 6

    Toast your bread.
  7. 7

    Once done, place however much butter you want on top of the bread and plate that up too.
  8. 8

    Finally, place the dollop of potato salad, the sweet corn, the cucumber slices, and the tomatoes on a plate.
  9. 9

    Dig in!

(Note: You are slicing things. Take care not to slice your hand! )

Yum!

Final Thoughts

This is great for those mornings when you have lots of time to yourself. There is a reason why Aletta loved it so much and the whole of Japan does as well; it is just plain good! Plus, as an added benefit, you get to enjoy breakfast with a rather balanced approach. Veggies at any time of the day are a good thing. That is all from us for now, but what do you think? Have you ever tried a morning set? Would you be willing to try one? Be sure to let us know in the comments below what you think and if you are interested in Isekai Shokudou and the delicious food it is bringing us! Till next time,
