*Good* fried rice

mira | Aug 16, 2006 03:07 PM

I'm craving chicken fried rice -- and *not* the toxic, soy-saturated, orange or brown crap that is served in most local Chinese restaurants.

For more than a decade, every time I'm in London I go to New Diamond on Lisle Street for a heaping plate of the most delicious chicken fried rice in existence. The rice is white, fluffy, glistening; the chicken is breast meat, cut into thin strips; there's plenty of egg. It's full of flavor; it's fantastic. I've heard the rest of the menu at New Diamond is great, too -- but I can never get beyond the chicken fried rice, because it's so wonderful, it's all I care to eat.

Unfortunately, I won't be in London again any time soon. HELP! Is there anywhere in the 5 boroughs to have a wonderful chicken (or beef, or vegetable) fried rice, treated with integrity and love by the chef?
