Wikipedia: Tamagoyaki
Tamagoyaki (卵焼き or 玉子焼き, literally “grilled egg”, also called tamago or dashimaki) is a type of Japanese omelette, which is made by rolling together several layers of cooked egg. These are usually prepared in a rectangular omelette pan called a makiyakinabe.

There are several types of tamagoyaki. It is made by combining eggs, and sometimes sugar or soy sauce. Additionally, sake and mirin are used in some recipes. An alternative version includes a mix of shrimp puree, grated mountain yam, sake, and egg, turned into a custard-like cake.

Tamagoyaki is served around the world in the form of nigiri, and also appears in many types of sushi rolls. In Japan, it is also served as a breakfast dish and in other preparations/
