Esukaroppu is a local dish of Nemuro City. Pork cutlet (tonkatsu in Japanese) topped with demi-glace sauce is served on rice. There are two choices of rice - fried rice with ketchup (red Esukaroppu) and fried rice with butter (white Esukaroppu). Around 1963, a chef of the local western-style restaurant ‘Mont Blanc’ created Esukaroppu, and it quickly became popular, with word spreading around the city. The chef originally aimed to satisfy local fishermen when they returned home from working on the sea hungry. As for the name, there are varying stories, but it is actually from the French dish, escalope, which was an inspiration for the chef.
