Sae Ju Song and wife Lee opened Lee’s Fried Rice, a pan-ethnic fried rice emporium in late July in an East Hollywood strip mall. Lee manages the kitchen, cooking every dish.
Fried rice is available with beef, chicken, shrimp (pictured), pork, vegetables or a combination. The “vegetables” are onions, cabbage, carrots, broccoli and bean sprouts. Fried rice arrives on a red plastic tray in an overflowing Styrofoam container, with a jar of Korean style red chile sauce.
A photo menu lists multicultural specials like Sopa 7 Mares, Korean style beef short ribs (galbi) and pad see iew. Lee also makes a complement of chow mein dishes, plus Korean style spicy pork, spicy chicken or beef bowls.
Each meal comes with a cold soda. In keeping with the multicultural approach, the selection includes Jarritos, a Mexican brand that comes in fruit flavors like lime and orange.
Décor is minimal. Order at the counter and grab a seat at a wood table, beneath the mirrored walls.
