Best fried rice on the Westside?
Am craving some seriously good fried rice tonight, something with lots of "wok hay" - the heat of the wok.
So you know where my bar is, I used to think Kuraku (sp?) that late night ramen place in Jtown was pretty decent.
I've tried the fried rice at all the ramen places around Sawtelle and thought it was OK. Any suggestions? And why is it that Chinese restaurants in LA make such lame fried rice?
Thanks for your help chowhounds!
There are NO good Chinese restaurants in west L.A., and the ones that are there cater to White people's palettes, so the fried rice is usually bad. If you want good fried rice, you will have to drive out to the San Gabriel Valley. There's a few good ones in the South Bay.
Your speaking of Koraku in Little Tokyo. Daikokuya has fried rice they make the same way.
In WLA-Take out only. Been there 30+ years...they know how to make fried rice the way you like it and pretty good old style egg rolls.
