    My favorite is at Din Tai Fung, but even better there is their pork chop fried rice

      I usually order the shrimp fried rice and add a side of pork chop since I was having so much trouble choosing between the two. Problem solved.

        Only problem is their portion is so small. Two orders of shrimp fried rice and two pork chops?

        Also, I really like the fried rice at Happy Harbour in City of Industry.

      Sea Harbour, Shanghai No. 1 Seafood and DTF all make very good shrimp (or shrimp + other item) fried rice.

        Mario's Peruvian on Melrose and Rossmore.

          I tried this since it's close to me. Real good, but oily. Have you noticed that?

            I found oily to be an issue with many of Mario's dishes. I second ipse's rec.

            If you drive into the SGV, perhaps you should consider some other versions of fried rice, particularly those made with egg whites and seafood.

            How about a recipe and hints for making this at home ?

              I took home shrimp fried rice from Krua Siri Thai last night and though it was quite good. Fairly basic, with large shrimp. Hit the spot.

              [I have been craving a good SFR every since you posted this query weeks ago.]
