The best Shrimp fried rice in LA?

If anyone loves shrimp fried rice as much as I do, I would love to know who has the best in the city which is not more than $10? Lately I have been going to Chinatown Express on Figueroa and getting either chicken fried rice with $2 extra shrimp or shrimp fried rice with $2 extra shrimp. Any suggestions?

          I'll second Mario's Peruvian. It's so good that I was suspicious as to its contents. However after refrigerating leftovers overnight and not seeing any fat solidify, my guess is that it might be a squirt of sesame oil that gives the added flavor.

              Just off the SW corner of Vine and Melrose.

              This really is the right answer.

            2. There's also the Japanese style shrimp fried rice. places like Ramenya and Asahi do it with an omelette on top and some sweet and sour gravy ladled over everything.
