Restaurant Fried Rice

Brian CampbellCamfam Cookery
This is the rice that you get at a Teppanyaki restaurant. Yes, we in America also call them "Hibachi" restaurants, even though a Hibachi is actually a small in-home coal heater and is NOT used for cooking. It would be like someone saying, "Hey, let's go to the charcoal briquet (singular) for dinner." To which the best reply might be, "Well, kiss my ash and call me hungry."

When you go to a Teppanyaki restaurant, you will see the cook/chef squirting a LOT of soy sauce throughout the cooking process.  It is actually 4 parts water to 1 part reduced-sodium soy sauce and 1/2 part simple syrup (sugar dissolved in water).  
If you want to grab a squeeze bottle and make your own, pour in the following:
8 tbsp water
2 tbsp soy sauce (reduced sodium is best)
1 tbsp simple syrup
