    Delicious. This dish is certainly quite garlicky, but we are garlic lovers so that wasn't a problem. We diced the mushrooms mistakenly, but I actually quite liked how they ended up blending into the rice once they cooked down. We omitted the optional tomato, and garnished the dish with lime wedges, sriracha, cucumber slices and fried eggs. This is an extremely speedy, flavorful dinner which I wouldn't hesitate to make again.

    p. 159 - We liked but didn't love this dish. It was a bit too garlicky for our tastes and I'll definitely make it again but will use less garlic next time. This is a very flavourful dish. I did opt to add the tomato, scallions, and the mushrooms though mine were a mix of cremini and shitake. We garnished w scallion, cucumber and lime. While I did add the fish sauce to the rice itself, we didn't garnish w the fish sauce with Hot Chiles. Maybe next time. Photos here:
