You can go to Thai Chili — inside Verizon Center — and order an off-menu delicacy known as “John Wall Fried Rice.” It got that name because Wall orders it so frequently — once or twice a week during the season, for going on three years.
So the next logical question is, what makes John Wall’s fried rice different?
“Shrimp fried rice with no tails and no vegetables,” someone at Thai Chili told me over the phone. “We know what he want, what he [doesn’t] want.”
Like, he wants zero vegetables. At all. I was told servers write that on the order slip for the kitchen “so they know exactly what they need.”
Well…it’s better than having a pick 6 burger named after you.
