Hawaii Mom Blog: Broken Rice

Broken Rice

A good friend of mine asked if I had been to Broken Rice before, since someone had recommended it to her. It had been a couple of years since I last came here for lunch, so I asked her if she wanted to meet for lunch. We met on a weekday during the lunch hour. The restaurant was never completely full, which made for a very relaxing midday meal.

I ordered the shaking beef, which was served on a bed of "broken rice". Of course I had to order something with broken rice, since the restaurant is called "Broken Rice". Broken rice is just that - broken rice ... or fragments of rice jasmine grains. It supposedly soaks up sauces and flavors better due to its texture, which probably explains why the beef is served on top of the rice, instead of next to it. I try not to eat a lot of white rice, but I made an exception today because the rice tasted so good with the sauce from the beef!

My friend ordered the Special Broken Rice, because it came with pork chop, chicken, shredded pork, meatloaf, with house slaw.  This is a good plate to order if you like variety on your plate.

Broken Rice also has soups and vermicelli dishes on the menu, but if you're planning to come here for the first time, you should order one of their broken rice dishes because there aren't a lot of restaurants that offer broken rice.

Closed on Mondays.
