I hate overcooked eggs so much that I tend to make my scrambled eggs a little on the runny side. If my sunny-side-up eggs come out of the kitchen a little loose in the whites, I'm not fazed. But this volcano-esque presentation of a Japanese omelet known as omurice ... well, I don't know if I'm sold.

Before the egg is split, you think maybe it's ice cream or some kind of fancy foam. Certainly a quenelle of something innocent. But then they take the knife to it and ... oh no. What is that?

I've never seen food simultaneously ooze and flop quite like this omurice. To say the above gif, captured by @tiffffin, is alarming is an understatement.

According to Insider Food, the omelet is carefully perched on a serving of rice, then topped with a generous ladleful of demi glace. Sounds pretty tasty, right? What do you think — would you eat something like this?
