I was at Laurel Hardware, a chic eatery out in Hollywood, a few weeks ago and I ordered the most amazing duck fried rice I have had in a long long time. it was delicious pulled duck, edamame, kimchi, carrots and it was topped with a sunny side up egg. So I was inspired to make my own, sans the duck. And let me tell you, it’s sooo good!

A key notes, kimchi in fried rice is best used when its a bit old. Fresh kimchi isn't ideal, so when you've got an open jar of kimchi in the fridge and day-old rice, reach for this recipe!
