OverBites: Bek Hee

One of my first priorities when moving to a new area is to find the best pork fried rice. Because I need pork fried rice once a month. You know what I'm talkin' about, ladies. It wasn't until a write-up in the RFT that I gave Bek Hee a chance.  The restaurant came under new ownership, and those owners make really good pork fried rice. And a plethora of it:

The container can barely contain all the PFR goodness!
Listen, readers, I'm not gonna pretend I'm writing about some authentic Chinese food place. This is the greasy, salty, fried-y Americanized Chinese takeout we all know and secretly love. It's just done better than average. Bek Hee does not skimp on flavor, ingredients or serving size. Were you wondering what was taking me so long between OverBites posts? Maybe it had something to do with the fact that 1 order of food at Bek Hee lasts me 4 meals. 
I asked for extra onions. No need to ask for extra pork... look at it all!

When the RFT wrote about Bek Hee, they talked about this white board and it's specials. I was looking forward to trying new specials each visit! Welp, those specials haven't actually changed since the article came out. Ha! No worry, though. It's like they know what we're really there for. PFR. However, the "specials" are delicious. The Singapore Chow Mei Fun is a giant pile of noodles stir-fried with curry, shrimp, pork, vegetables, peanuts and chicken. Again, they do not hold back on the meat and vegetables. This is a flavor bomb, and I'm okay with it's permanent residence on the white board.

The roast pork eggrolls are another "special." Stuffed simply with cabbage and their savory pink roasted pork and fried, these thick rolls really hit the (pork) spot.

So, yep, I have a great pork fried rice place. Thank you, Bek Hee, I am home.
