This is one of the dishes that Chef Nobu created to cater to international guests at the Nobu Hotel. He noticed every hotel he stayed in served eggs so he took scrambled eggs and added a Japanese touch with steamed rice, seaweed and grilled salmon (grilled fish is traditional to Japanese breakfast). The eggs go well with the umami taste.
