It can be eaten in restaurants as an accompaniment to gyoza, ramen, and of course beer!

If you want the full Japanese experience, why not make some gyoza too!

Of course, chahan is delicious on its own, but if you're feeling like a typical home-made Japanese meal, why not make some "gyoza", a.k.a, the most perfect accompaniment to Japanese fried rice. Gyozas are meat-filled dumplings and are absolutely amazing, especially if they are home-made and not frozen.
