Upper Class Fried Rice

upper class fried rice menu

I saw this intriguing menu item while having dinner – it’s called Upper Class Fried Rice and weighs in at a respectable RM 25. It has to be the most expensive fried rice I’ve ever seen! Naturally, I was pretty curious about just what an “Upper Class Fried Rice” contains. I wanted to see what justifies the larger-than-life price tag since the second highest priced item (Golden Fried Rice – slightly less expensive at RM 22) comes with salmon roe topping.

Thus, I asked the waitress about the ingredients in this so-called Upper Class Fried Rice (RM 25, just in case you forgot). Apparently, this Atas Fried Rice (as @retardedly_cute calls it) contains asparagus, shallots and other premium ingredients. I just had to try it.

I usually can’t eat fried rice as a standalone dish (coz I’m a bit of a carnivore…need meat) but I finished this dish. It’s quite good. My friends who sampled the dish concurred – the rice was fried really well (individual grains instead of clumps) and it tasted “fresh”. The best thing about the rice is surprisingly the humble egg. The restaurant uses egg whites only and it came out really fluffy. It still doesn’t justify the RM 25 price tag though.

This begs the question…is there a Lower Class Fried Rice for RM 2.50?

  1. HB, this in states called House Fried Rice and it have scallop, lobster and other seafood in it. My cousin wife who from Singapore said the Lorong Selamat char kueh tiaw is better than in Singapore. I guess different location and country that why.

  2. Lol… 25 ringgit for fried rice? That price is too atas for fried rice! =_=
    Does it really taste that good that it’s worth a try? Where did you have this anyway? Since I’ll be off to Semenanjung in a few weeks I just thinking if I can try this out… y’know.. overpriced things.. sometimes it’s a huge temptations as well. Call it the YSL of fried rice (atasnya!)

  3. HB, really good fried rice. Wonder in last entry Satay Celup is McQuek’s Satay Celup just as good as Ban Lee Siang? Someone at work who been to Malaysia like McQuek’s.

  4. HB, that is very costly for just fried rice and yet you knew what in it but as long you enjoyed it that matter. Is there a street in Malacca called Food Street or Jonker Street. A tour guide just came back told me lot of vendors selling all kind of food there.

  5. where’s this place???!
    that’s a rather premium price. no wonder the upper class moniker.
    kinda compulsory to order if one’s a datuk or datin dining there …else they’ll be relegated to the lower ranks?

  6. Upper Class Fried Rice – strategically named…
    it will definitely get orders out of curiosity!
    Also make the guests feel class & upper class during entertainment by big corporate client/supplier!
    A bit pricey, but at least you tried and satisfied :D
    Do drop by for a “Mysterious Road” post at my blog, tks!

  8. chefmel: Heh! Sure, when you come down to KL, cook one for me. Let’s see how your fried rice tastes like. I’m sure it’s great! :)
    Vickie: Lorong Selamat CKT is the best ever! :)
    Jac: Yeah, it’s a bit on the steep side eh? I had this in Genting though, so that’s probably why. :)
    suanie: Haha! Yeah, compared to this one. :)
    Suan you’re here! =D
    Ryan: It’s in Genting, but I saw they have another branch in Imbi Plaza (IIANM) in KL too…not sure if the prices are different though. I wouldn’t go out of my way to eat it though. :)
    Michael (Mike): Yeah, that’s the other famous satay celup in Melaka. :)
    Erica: Yup! It’s called Jonker Street/Walk! :)
    Tan Yee Hou: Interesting! I’m sad to say that I didn’t know that. Alas. :S
    Cheers for the info! :)
    Implosion: Yup, but it’s not Australia here, so RM 25 for a plate of fried rice is still quite expensive. :)
    Simon Seow: There’s one outlet in KL…would be interesting to try. :)
    Robb: Yeah, most of the stuff in this restaurant is quite pricey, even for Genting, compared to places like Shanghai 10. :)
    Jeff: LOL! Nice one mate. Middle Class Fried Rice, I somehow doubt that would make as much of an impact as Upper Class Fried Rice. ;)
    eiling: It’s shallots as in fried onions. :)
    Yalor, it’s a bit too expensive at RM 25…but it tasted quite good though. Not RM 25 good, maybe RM 10 good. :)
    Jacklyn: I’m not a big fan of fried rice in general (for reasons stated above – need meat) but this one is pretty good. :)
    ShaolinTiger: Indeed! I would have thought it would be something special since the next priced item at RM 22 has salmon roe on top. :)
    mat`amit: Yeah, but it’s at Genting. *shrugs*
    KY: Haha! Good one buddy. True, that! :)
    J2Kfm: It’s in Genting…right at the First World Plaza…er, plaza. :)
    Iriene: Interestingly named road. :)
    Cheers, I’ll check Pantai Seafood out someday. :)
    Tian Chad: Haha! I got RM 2 fried rice in Sibu too. ;)
    Cheryl: Yup! You’re very observant…or maybe you just go to Genting very often. ;)
    headsteadi: Heh! I doubt the waitress would last very long with a pile of hot, fried rice on her. ;)
    whimsicaljottings: Yeah, that’s why I thought it was a bit overpriced. It’s the fried stuff on top of the rice. :)
    Adi Wong: It’s Restaurant Causeway Bay in Genting, like Cheryl said. :)
    Shirley Snow: Great! I’ll see you when you get back! :)

  9. Cheryl: Hehe! I’m kidding. :)
    Okay, come find me if you’re going. It’s actually surprisingly near. I just went during the weekend.

  10. I love rice, HB. When I was growing up, If we had rice at supper, you knew the left overs were gonna show up as rice porridge for breakfast. But fried rice? you better belive it. Another thing I love. Any left over rice was “stir fried” with any thing (meat or fish) or vegtbles, with the addiion of some soy. To this day, my favorite is fried rice, with green peas, corn, beans, and a little leftover ( whats in the fridge?). A way to feed a hungry bunch of kids, with little money, HB. We liked chicken wings back then, because they were cheap. Now they sell them around here for 12 bucks for 6. Back then, it was considered food fit only for dogs. Well, they say the same thing about lobster and crab legs now. MMMM Now I am hungry . God Bless, HB.

  11. Tom Robinson: Yeah, rice is very filling and quitee addictive too once you’re used to it. You start to crave for the carbohydrates, and that’s not necessary a good thing. :)
