Japanese fried rice is an interesting dish and after serving it for quite a few years now, we have become accustomed to the surprise from our patrons. Most people are aware and familiar with fried rice but only the Chinese version of it. To them, another kind of fried rice does not hold much curiosity and they often favor some other dish over this one. If you are trying Japanese fried rice in Port Arthur for the first time, you are in for a pleasant surprise.
At Koko Ramen Poke Bowl, we offer different variants of the dish where mostly the protein portion keeps on changing. The other ingredients remain almost the same unless some drastic measures are to be taken. A lot of people discover the difference between the main two types of fried rice when the dish is served and a few of them do not even accept that they have been served the right dish.
We have, hence, taken it upon ourselves to give you an impromptu and short tour of this dish and how it differs from the traditional or in this case more familiar version of the food. the first difference you will notice regarding Japanese fried rice is the look of the dish. This is because, in the Chinese version, long-grain rice is used which is also drier. In the Japanese version, shorter grained and sticky rice Calrose type of rice is used. It is one of the biggest sources of difference in look and taste.
Another interesting tit-bit that we at Koko Ramen Poke Bowl would like to point out is that to cook Japanese fried rice, sake is used, especially in well-known and popular places. In short, when you are ordering the Japanese version of fried rice, you should be prepared for the differences and a new experience. If you are ordering a lunch box in Port Arthur though, then you won’t have to worry about these things and it will be possible to have a healthy meal.
The experience with this particular dish will be interesting and you can try to make it memorable by introducing someone else to share the experience. For instance, you can choose to bring your significant other along and order something they haven’t tried before. it may not be showy and conventional but you cannot deny the sweetness and special nature of the gesture.
