    Congee Village does it. I haven't had the fried rice, but I've had the version they serve in a bamboo vessel--very good.

      Jing Fong has it...honestly most chinese restos will have it even if it's not on the menu. It's pretty standard

        fu wong on bowery does a good version of this. lots of "wok air." i like mine to have the taste of the salted fish evenly distributed through the rice but not be overly salty and they do this well. 9 chatham does this dish decently in the daytime and crappily at night. kelea is right tho, most cantonese places should make this for you even if it's not on the menu so you can go into your favorite place and just get them to make it for you.

          Why just Cantonese? I think most Fujian-style restaurants would have it too, if that's the dish that bigjeff transcribed. Just ask! Heck, I took it out of a Taiwanese restaurant last Friday. Yum!

          Do the Malaysian places do it as a casserole?

            I had it at Big Wong's yesterday. Don't know if it's the best but I enjoyed the little bits of fresh ginger.
