This delicious fried rice recipe is from the Westin Maui, Hawaii; where they serve it in a fancy version of a Chinese take-home box. It makes an neat party dish since it's easy to walk around while munching on the fried rice in a box.

I made this for my luau-themed birthday party, and I will definitely make it again! It was easy and delicious. The only thing I changed was that I omitted the macadamia nuts because I'm poor. Also, I used vegetarian oyster sauce instead of regular. Thanks for sharing! My friends and I loved it.
