King of Fried Rice

This is the 6th Outlet opened by King of Fried Rice and finally they are located in the West. I came to know King of Fried Rice last year when I heard countless of reviews about them last year. During the Circuit Breaker last year, I had ordered their fried rice from Golden Mile Tower but my order had been delayed too long thus it was not reviewed during then. Food will generally taste better at the stall without "Tabao" aka taking away and let's check this out.

Stall of King of Fried Rice

The alluring fragrance of the dome shaped fried rice was similar to Din Tai Fung (DTF) 's Egg Fried rice. However, King of Fried rice do offers other fried rice like XO Fried Rice, Tom Yum Fried Rice as well as Mala Fried Rice, 4 versions with choice of pork cutlet, shrimp, crabmeat and Tobiko.

Plain Egg Fried Rice - $4

Their pork cutlet is a must try and the staple order among the items in the menu. Basically with the plain egg fried rice decking up a slab of well-marinated pork chop. 

Egg Fried Rice Pork Cutlet - $6.90

The chilli is more towards the type of fried chilli from Lao Gan Ma. However, we felt that the taste of chilli is quite overpowering and may take away both the fragrance and taste of the fried rice as well as the pork cutlet.

The XO Fried Rice was plain egg fried rice with XO sauce and tasted with hints of "Hae Bi Hiam" (Fried Shrimp Chilli) fragrance.

With the base as plain egg fried rice, we had the crabmeat and tobiko topped it. The quantity given was sufficient, however the seafood taste from the crustaceans has been a tad overpowering here. Nevertheless, the Tobiko has added some flavours and texture to the plate of rice.

Egg Fried Rice with Crabmeat & Tobiko - $10

As overall, if you are comparing King of Fried Rice to DTF's fried rice, I will still prefer the taste of DTF. However, for the price paid here comparing to the Michelin Restaurant, it's of a different expectation, it all depends if you are going for a quality or value-for-money meal. 

Though both DTF and King's fried rice were light and fluffy in each individual grain, I still felt that DTF's use of eggs is more evenly distributed and have brought out its piquant tastes in which allows me to be addicted to it. Unlike, King's it did not give us the kind of continuous "temptation" after having some mouthful of it.

Rating: 3.25 / 5
