wanted: squid ink fried rice

When in Okinawan islands we had this simple black fried rice dish with squid inside and a thin egg yolk omelette perched on top. So rich and delicious and I've been craving this since we got back. Is there anyplace in LA, maybe on Sawtelle or in Little Tokyo where you've seen this? Nothing like a black tooth smile. Thanks hounds.

  1. AOC has a squid ink risotto with squid and saffron aioli on top which rocks. Not quite what you're looking for but after you've had it, you won't regret it.

      Steve, that does sound tasty (sans the fancy mayo for me) and will check it out! Thanks for the tip.

    2. Not the same, but Versailles has a delicious arroz con calamares that is something like a paella w/ squid and black ink. simple & excellent.
