Shout-out to the best restaurant in Provo


RICE KING.

I know it and love it. I have taken countless people there and they realize that yes, it is amazing. Here's why:
  • amazing food
  • awesome owners
  • comfy atmosphere
  • no wait
  • freakishly cheap

I've been going there for 3 years now, and it just gets better and better! The lunch menu is just spectacular. For $4.99 you get an entree (all of which are delicious), AMAZING soup (the Hot & Sour soup is my favorite), as much rice as you can eat, and a refillable drink (usually Dr. Pepper for me). It's the perfect amount of food. I always get the lo mein, and Kyle always gets something different and we share everything. Usually we bring some lo mein home for Katy because she's obsessed with it. Two people can eat as much as they possibly can, with drinks, for $10. IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

The whole experience is made so much better by knowing Victor. He and his wife own/manage Rice King, and he's usually our waiter too. I LOVE VICTOR! He is so funny! Today Kyle and I went there and as we walked in he pointed to where we should sit and called out "Dr. Pepper and Sprite!" because he knows us so well. He chatted with Kyle about graduating in April--because he remembered that we mentioned that last time. It's so fun to be known. We're definitely sending Rice King an invitation, because Victor's seen me in there with so many boys, and now there will just be one consistent man to accompany me! I love being a regular there, and it makes me sad to know that in one year I'm going to have to leave it behind!
I would encourage you all to frequent Rice King, lunch or dinner. It's on Center Street. It's getting to be busier than it used to be, which kind of makes me sad, but I'm also happy that Victor and his wife are so successful.
