Rod Dee Cambridge

Rod Dee in Cambridge now has four locations, not counting the off-shot in Stoneham, Gin U Dee. They are located on Mass Ave just outside Porter Square.

This is my first visit here and they looked really small from the outside. This place is cash only but I had done my homework and was aware of that. If you are not, they have an ATM inside the restaurant.

The inside was surprisingly large and well lit. The place was immaculately clean and the heat was on, two plusses right off the bat. You order at the counter and then pick up water or free tea to the right were the utensils reside. The food is brought out to you when it's ready. When you are done, you bus your own table. Obviously, no tipping required so you save a couple of bucks, another plus.

I decided to try the Indonesian Fried Rice ($9.80) with crispy chicken & fried egg. Not sure what makes the rice Indonesian but it was nice and tasty with plenty of chicken in the rice as well as the really Crispy Chicken on top. Be aware that what looks like pieces of innocent green peppers in the rice isn't. There was white chicken in the rice and it was not dry despite being thinly sliced. The dark meat crispy chicken was really nice and crispy and the egg was cooked perfectly. I ordered it medium spicy and could have done with more heat but it was my first time here and you never know about the heat levels until you try it. It was a big portion, so I'll have dinner as well. Plastic utensils only and the knife was seriously wobbly. I had trouble cutting the onion slices.
