The key to making perfect fried rice is using cold leftover rice.

There’s a really great Thai restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn I used to go to all the time called Sea that has a great vibe and a DJ. I always ordered the fried rice because it’s just amazing! I was on a mission to make this myself, and after researching and experimenting, I managed to get very close. Thai fried rice gets it’s unique flavor from the fish sauce, soy sauce and chili peppers. The jasmine rice is a must! Although here I used chicken, I’ve also made this with shrimp, beef or pork. Enjoy!
