Turkish Rice is a specialty dish of Nagasaki consisting of pork cutlet, spaghetti, and rice pilaf served on a single plate. While the spaghetti is usually a ketchup based Neapolitan pasta and the pork cutlet is covered with curry sauce, tourists may find each restaurant has their own unique spin to the dish. Some restaurants offer cream sauce instead of Neapolitan, while others may opt to use chicken katsu or hamburger patties instead of Tonkatsu. Instead of curry rice, some restaurants may offer thicker meat sauces, or use gravy for a loco-moco Hawaiian-style dish. It would be safe for tourists to assume when three Western dishes are mentioned in Nagasaki, it's likely Turkish Rice is involved. Despite the clear reference to the country Turkey, Turkish Rice is an entirely Nagasaki-born dish.
