    I just love the Yeung Chow Fried Rice from China Max. We order it every time. It's lightly fried and "loose" with very little soy sauce, and has shrimp, roast pork, egg, scallions, and peas.

      Well, it is sure to be totally un-authentic or even considered remotely good traditional Chinese, but the house special fried rice at the Rickshaw (strip mall at NW corner of Clairemont Mesa Blvd. and Santo Road in Tierrasanta) is a great 3-dinner dish that is a great value too. The rice is dense, heavy and sticks together, and the wok is well-seasoned so it has lots of satisfying layers of flavors. Big chunks of chicken and beef, lighter on the vegetables than other types I have had. Great comfort food.

        Ya know, sometimes it doesn't matter if it's authentic or not. If it tastes good and you enjoy the dish and find it satisfying, that counts for an awful.

        kare_raisu, I thought you were a college student...you must be in an easy program, so much time available!

        Being semi retired and do have time, here is my choice: the Shrimp with XO sauce fried rice at the Nobel Chief!

          That I am...but why should I let my passion lay waste while I attend school? Time management as well as little sleep, my friend.
