When a restaurant has a side dish they refer to as an “accompaniment”, you know it’s good. The crab fried rice at Eddie V’s may be the main attraction. Don’t let those delectable center-cut filet mignons fool you—this side dish is center stage.
On a whim I chose the crab fried rice as a side plate. It’s big enough to share but it was SO good I wanted it all! This is not the fried rice your mother may have made. It’s LOADED with butter. So much so you can see the delicious trail of golden dew left on the plate.
Eddie V’s tops the rice with a huge dollop of fresh lump crab meat. Yes! Your fork goes right through a mountain of crab to pull up some buttery rice along with flavorful shiitake mushrooms and green onions. Doesn’t get much better than that.
I crave this dish so often that if I had an ounce less of self control I’d be bankrupt. It’s with that I leave you my version of quite possibly the best steakhouse side of all time.
