You will not find this dish anywhere else in the city. The unique texture comes from a special Asian short-grain rice that gets especially sticky when cooked. Rice balls are deep-fried into crisp cakes and served with soy sauce, cabbage salad and barbecue pork. It’s a Vietnamese specialty that can be eaten with anything and frequently at that. $9, 3650 S. Decatur Blvd., 221-0766.
