Firstly, flavourful chicken.. made from range-free chicken if possible, so that the meat is flavourful and not too fatty and just bouncy enough. The chicken meat should be well cooked, best if lightly grilled.
Secondly, good, fresh eggs cooked to a precise degree of perfection so that the egg whites are wobbly and the yolks are semi-liquid.
Thirdly and most importantly, tasty Japanese rice cooked with chicken stock until it is slight wet but not soupy.

Look at the eggs... slurp
This is the restaurant. It is like an izakaya but the specialty is oyako-don
