psychedelic pork-fried rice

the first time i bought the barbecued-pork fried rice from the hy-vee at 50th & o st, it was because i thought the food would take a nice picture. it caught my eye. why buy fried rice? how hard is that?

about a week later, the second time i bought the same item, it was because the first round was delicious. and i was at that same store buying other stuff. and i looked for it again.

hy-vee apparently built it into their business model to offer american-style chinese take-out at all locations. with the kitchen for this separate from the hot deli kitchen. brilliant.

of course i support my neighborhood restaurants, but i see this 3.49 purchase on a receipt again.
