Donburi (Jap) 丼): i.e. a bowl of rice and additives; due to their type, we divide donburi into different meals:

・ oyacodon (jap) 親 丼): chicken and egg rice; sometimes you can also encounter the salmon and egg versions. Interestingly, the name of this dish consists of two words “oya” – a parent and “ko” a child (plus “don” – a bowl). So this is a parental dish with a child, e.g. egg chicken or egg salmon
