I asked what was the best dish on the menu and this was the chef's favorite. It's not quite fried rice. You get your choice of beef, chicken, or tofu (I chose chicken) with bacon, pineapple, bell pepper, onion and cilantro in a citrus sauce. Your choice of vehicles are brown rice or lo-mein noodles. I went with the recommenced brown rice. I like brown rice a lot and this was good, but honestly I think the noddles would have been better with the sauce.The sauce made it a little bit soupy for a rice dish, but it would have been perfect with noodles. The chicken is grilled first and had a nice citrus marinade I think on it. The bacon added some bursts of smokiness too. I guess my only complaint here is I would have like more cilantro in it, I think more cilantro would have gone very good with the citrus sauce. I'm very partial to cilantro though so your taste may vary. Synopsis: A good hearty dish for a gloomy day when the tropics are calling!
