Pork Fried Rice

I had a similar thread and just found the closest thing to what I was looking for in West Oakland at Fortune Cookie.

There is another "American Fried Rice" thread on here which mentions Chefs in El Cerrito. I am going to pay them a visit too.

In Search of NYC Style pork fried rice american style

Wow, I wish I would have checked back on this thread sooner. Thanks Roti! so far Fortune Cookie is the closest I have found ! I was really happy when I went in last night. At first I was skeptical, but when I told the lady what I was looking for, she seemed confident that she had the goods. Sure enough. I'm having the rest for breakfast today.

Generally all over NYC .... I am heading there next week , and might just have to take a picture of it while I am there. There used to be a Shanghai restaurant on Clement Street that had some amazing fried rice , but I think they went out of business . . .

It's a funny search , I know... but I am determined to demystify this most untraditional non Chinese Chinese dish. Pictures to follow soon.

Great points about the molasses , and thick sauce. I've tried before , but didn't get it to work.

The search continues !

:)

more to come soon .

I grew up in NYC, I know that the fried rice I am searching for is NOT authentic Chinese style, but because I grew up with it... I love it, and I would love to find a place around Berkeley or SF that makes it like this.

You know what I'm talking about right ? Made with dark soy sauce, has green onions in it, pretty salty with nice sized chunks of pork. The call it small town fried rice some places, and then they call it american style other places.

Does anyone else enjoy this as much as I do ? ? ? ? If so , please let me know where to find it.
