Good morning! Say, L.H. in Ballard -- and yours truly, whose brain is a bit foggy after a three-day weekend -- needs help. Her question:
"For diabetics out there who are supposed to eat brown rather than white rice, can you or your readers help identify Indian and Japanese restaurants offering it? Brown rice is fairly common in Chinese and Thai restaurants, but I've only found one Japanese restaurant (serving it as a side, not sushi though) and no Indian restaurants. Thanks for any insights you can provide."
Hmmm. The only place I can think of, besides Wild Ginger (serving brown rice as well as white since it opened) is Red Fin, the Japanese-accented restaurant and sushi bar in the Hotel Max. Anybody have any answers for L.H.? And while you're at it, feel free to help other readers along by listing other restaurants that regularly serve brown rice. Despite what L.H. told me, the healthier rice-alternative is not something I commonly find while dining out at Chinese and Thai restaurants -- or any other, for that matter. But then I'm not on the lookout for it, as she (and perhaps you) are.
