It’s now $4 a box but I still love it. Fried rice from Wellington Street Bus Station makes a perfect breakfast.
I sneak my box of fried rice into the kitchen and quietly heat it up in the microwave hoping no one will come in and ask me what that smell is and ask, “What, fried rice for breakfast?” I just can’t be bothered having THAT conversation. Kind of like when I answered the door one Sunday morning holding a plate of leftover curry and rice that I was eating, and Jac’s mum said, with a strange expression on her face (a cross between horror, amusement and disbelief) “My goodness, you’re eating curry for BREAKFAST?”
Whenever Jac cooks fried rice, she always makes sure there’s extra so I can have some for breakfast the next morning.
