Heart-Shaped Rice

HISTORY

Fried rice is beloved throughout the globe and an iconic part of our guests’ Benihana experiences, which is why Benihana wanted to give this signature item the spotlight and declare September 20, National Fried Rice Day.  Established in 2018, Benihana turned out the holiday in style breaking the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for longest cooking marathon. This year, after popular demand, Benihana is making the celebration even bigger extending it into a two-day event.
