Some might say, fried rice isn’t for savoring. Fried rice after all is a dish that’s made from leftovers, it’s hardly haute cuisine. That said, if you’re an aficionado of this dish like we are, you’ll know that every fried rice is not created equal. Some restaurants just really know how to rock the, um, wok. O.k. pardon the pun, here’s our favorite fried rice dishes in SLC:
At this South Salt Lake Taiwanese restaurant you can find this dish, Mom’s fried rice; the dish uses a salty and sweet sausage alongside prawns.

Cafe Anh Hong
State Street’s Cafe Anh Hong is one of the best restaurants in the state for Cantonese cuisine, not least weekend dim sum service. The restaurant also cooks up a mean fried rice too; the menu features all your favorites such as chicken, ham or beef plus yang chow and the above pictured special fried rice.

Tea Rose Diner
What about a Thai spin on this fun dish? Over in Murray, the humble Tea Rose Diner has several fried rice preparations including this house special that mixes in shrimp, chicken, pork and beef. Being a Thai fried rice, the dish is slightly sweeter than others on this list, and also uses aromatic Jasmine rice.

SOMI Vietnamese Bistro
Over in Sugar House, this trendy and chic eatery offers a traditional chicken fried rice preparation that pushes all our buttons. The dish is served noticeably wok fresh and is a little cheaper at lunch too.
215 E Wilmington Ave, Salt Lake City, UT 84106
This fun take on the classic dish adds basil, garlic and chili for a Thai-twist. It’s excellent fried rice in it’s own right, but the extra flavors take it over the top.
