I'm not a big fan of Chinese food, but the Phoenix in Arcadia has got to be one of my favorite chinese restaurants ever. I was curious though, how do they cook their rice? I noticed that their white rice has a taste to it. I don't know how to describe it, but it's definetly one of my favorite things about the restaurant. I'm aware that there are different types of grains but I think there's more to it. Their white rice has some kind of flavoring. What's their secret?
I also noticed that for some dishes they don't serve this "special" rice. It's guaranteed to come with the "Phoenix Boneless Chicken and Rice" dish, but getting the flavored rice with other plates is based purely on chance. Does anyone why? Or is it something you have to request.?
