Everyone knows 7-Eleven as the popular international chain of convenience stores that offer a wide range of products, including value meals. In the Philippines, the value meals are called "busog meals," and there are three types: pork giniling, pork sisig, and tuna omelette.

The tuna omelette is a delicious fluffy omelette made with tuna meat and vegetables. In this recipe, I'll show you how to make a simple tuna omelette that's very similar to the 7-Eleven version.

      I never thought of using the tuna oil. What is next to it on the plate? Are you serving it with a vegetable omelette?
