Chinese Rice or Japanese Rice?
If you ever thought all rice was just rice and not much difference to the way you cook it, you probably haven’t ever ate any real good rice before. We have had Chinese restaurants in my area for years. The first one opened up when I was about 7 or 8 years old. I still remember my first trip there and what I ordered at my first Chinese Restaurant. I got the won ton soup and that’s really the last time I have ever ordered it. I didn’t think the soup was really that bad, but there are just a lot more foods I prefer to eat at a Chinese restaurant. Most of these restaurants serve steamed rice and it tastes like the rice you cook at home in most cases.
Now a whole new taste of rice has hit my local hometown and it’s been the rice from Japan. These guys know how to cook rice! It is a lot more expensive to eat at a Japanese restaurant; when comparing them to Chinese food prices. If you can eat at lunch time or find a good sale on Japanese food, you may be able to eat some of this great food at a price you can afford. I mean the fried rice at Japanese restaurants is a meal in itself. I certainly prefer the fried rice over the typical steamed rice that gets cooked at most Chinese restaurants.
Over at Buy.com, they have a Black and Decker rice cooker and I would like to order this product. See if I could cook my own rice at home that tasted as great as the rice served in Asian restaurants. I didn’t even know these rice cookers existed. I have did the 5 minute rice at home; which you pretty much just boil and eat. I think one of these specially prepared cookers is the way to go, if you want to save money and prepare your own rice at home.
Do you share my same love for Japanese food over Chinese food? To me the biggest difference comes down to the rice. Even the fried rice in Chinese restaurants don’t serve up the flavor you can get with the Japanese rice. It’s a big difference and one that will wake up the taste buds. Rice is not just rice and if you believe this; you really need to find a place that serves Hibachi dinners or a Japanese restaurant.Click here for reuse options!
