If rice is nice, it follows that free rice would be nicer — and free fried rice maybe best of all.
Friday is National Fried Rice Day, believe it or not, and here’s a food holiday for which somebody claims credit — Benihana, in this case. And on this second annual National Fried Rice Day, the company is doing something to celebrate.
From noon to 2 p.m. Friday, the Benihana at Fashion Show mall will have a pop-up sampling event, offering a “healthy portion” of its beloved dish to those who come by. Or, if you dine in either Thursday or Friday, you can get free hibachi chicken fried rice with every entree purchase.
