  1. The real secret is the rice they use is day old and has been clihled to remove the moisture, so when the stir fry it with the veg, chicken and add the egg to it the whole thing does not clump up, I am a former chef, worked in Asia with Chinese/Thai and Japanese chefs, you can use any soya sauce you like, I use Mushroom soya sauce as it is darker and has a musty flavour, if you do not want to wait a whole day, then cook your rice, place it on a saran wrap line cookie sheet, place it in the freezer for 1-2 hours fork shift it a few times, then use for you fried rice dish, mot Chinese restaurant steam there rice to that makes it fluffier and not so soggy, plus the cook it by the bag a day so after a while the just remove the old rice and chill it for fired rice or make Congee a soup like dish served in the morning at dim sum.
