Pineapple Fried Rice Favorite Delivery From Kung Fu
The Best Pineapple Fried Rice in Las Vegas is cooked at Kung Fu Thai & Chinese Restaurant using only the best sauces from the orient, along with the freshest chicken, pineapples, raisins, and the finest rice. Pineapple fried rice could trace its origins to the central plains of Thailand, which includes Bangkok. The dish came about during the height of the country’s Pineapple harvest, as pineapples became plentiful and cheap, house wives started to put chunks of pineapples into their leftover steamed rice from previous meals, adding grounded tomatoes, a little curry, eggs, meat, shrimp, and crab, this made for a quick and inexpensive lunch for the whole family. The dish became known as Pineapple Fried Rice to Westerners who visit Thailand. Oddly enough the Thais often call this dish “American Style” Fried Rice due to the pinkish reddish color exhibited by the rice after grounded tomatoes are added to the cooking process. Since almost every dish in the American plate contains some type of tomato ingredients, whether it’s the tomato puree, tomato paste, marinara, salsa, ketchup, as well as tomato juice, Thais started to call the pineapple fried rice, “American Fried Rice” since it had grounded tomatoes which is often in paste like condition after being grounded.
Fried Rice origins could be traced as far back as to Ancient China. Due to the lack of resources and the rampant overpopulation in China, the Chinese people often left nothing to be thrown away in terms of vegetables, fruits, grains, livestock, and marine creatures, virtually anything in which the human body could consume for food. That meant that any rice was often reused, and the idea of cooking rice that was already steamed started, when Chinese peasants had steamed rice left over from dinner, decided to recook the rice in a wok adding eggs, some left over vegetables, and scraps of meat that was usually left over from last night’s dinner. The resulting dish often was eaten for lunch or midday as a good form of carbohydrates as almost every Chinese was involved in manual labor. Today Fried Rice is being cooked throughout the world, and has proliferated into other Asian cuisines as well, including Japanese, Indonesian, Pilipino, Indian, and even in every Muslim countries, which has derived their own version of the vegetarian fried rice. Fried Rice has also made inroads in Africa, which is gaining popularity in Nigeria, Ghana and Togo.
History Of Fried Rice
In America, Fried Rice was introduced in San Francisco as early as the 1840’s by Chinese laborer becoming the first group of immigrants from Asia to arrive in the United States. As with any new immigrants arriving to America for the first time, they took the dangerous voyage across the Pacific Ocean in search of a better life, and that almost always include the search for jobs. Chinese immigrated to the West Coast of the United States found work laying railroad tracks following the construction boom of the intercontinental Railroads. As the laborers settle in forming the first Chinatown in the United States, in San Francisco, they later sent for their wives and family, bringing with them the art of Chinese Cooking, and Fried Rice. Although the Chinese population often lingered in and around Chinatown throughout the major metropolitan areas of the United States, it was not until the late 1960’s that Chinese food and thus fried rice has since become a staple in American’s Asian dining scene.
The ” Best Fried Rice in Las Vegas ” was first cooked in 1974 on 3rd and Fremont Street in Downtown Vegas. By simply calling the Restaurant “Kung Fu”, named after the martial art technique of Bruce Lee, who was at his zenith in terms of popularity in 1973, the Wong family chose this short, but simple name which at the time everyone living in Las Vegas could recognize. Kung Fu is pronounced “Gong Fu” in Cantonese, and is actually translated into English meaning; “to work harder at something”. Although the Wong family immigrated from Thailand, and Thai food was their specialty, no one in America new what Thai food was, is, much less point to Thailand on the map in the early 1970’s. To name the restaurant after a Thai name and or vernacular would be disastrous at that time, which is why they chose to name the restaurant Kung Fu.As American Servicemen started to return from the Vietnam War, and started to frequent the one or two Thai restaurants at the time which started out in Los Angeles, Thai cuisine finally got a their introduction in America, although still unknown and relegated only in small circles, nonetheless Las Vegans finally got Thai in 1974. As the city expanded and changed, so too did Kung Fu Restaurant, having moved into the Union Plaza Hotel (aka Plaza Hotel circa 2013) in 1983, becoming the first independently owned and managed restaurant in a major Casino Hotel in Las Vegas at the time, and that is where we picked up the “Plaza” in Kung Fu Plaza Restaurant. As the 1990’s was on a roll, with the Las Vegas Strip Hotels rapidly expanding and transforming into resorts, with their renewed boom, the Wong family decided to move to our current location today, the southwest corner of Spring Mountain Road and Valley View Blvd, the start of Chinatown Las Vegas. Although it wasn’t called, or designated Chinatown at the time, Kung Fu Plaza Restaurant just wanted to be closer to their clients on the Las Vegas Strip.
