I'm embarassed to ask this, but does anybody know of a good place to get cornball, Americanized, fried rice? The kind that is sort of brownish and has egg, scallions, peas and bbq pork in it?
We used to get it at a greasy spoon place on Franklin next to the Post Office near 15th Street. That place is no longer there. Lots of people in my office used to eat lunch there because their lunch plate (really cheap) came with about 5 lbs of food. Their fried rice, however, was pretty good.
I've gotten fried rice once at Lana's on 19th near Broadway (also in Oakland) but NEVER again! Greasy greasy greasy and terrible like the rest of their food - sticky sweet sauces, loads of salt. The place is always packed (and a couple of guys in my office go there once a week for their MEATLOAF!!) I know it's cheap, but sheeesh.
