Nasi goreng pattaya, or simply nasi pattaya, is a Malaysian dish made by covering or wrapping chicken fried rice, in fried egg. It is often served with chili sauce, cucumber, and/or keropok. The name comes from Pattaya, Thailand. A similar dish exists in Japan, and is called Omuraisu (from the English words omelette (Omuretsu) and rice). It is a fried ketchup-flavored rice sandwiched with a thinly spread beaten egg or covered with a plain egg omelette. (Quoted from Wikipedia).
