Nothing new about this type of rice. I think you were looking at the Basmati rice, which is used in making Nasi Bryani. The Basmati rice is considered among the best rice and most fragrant rice around. It is rated even better and more expensive than the Thai rice. Though commonly used in making Nasi Bryani, due to the price, not many hawker centre stalls will use it and they usually substitute it with normal rice.

isn't that basmati rice or something?
The grains are much longer than the normal rice we eat.
Like how the japanese have their own type of rice meant for sushi.
The indians also have their own preferred type of rice to go with their dishes.

There are many types of rice:

In Italy they grow rice that doesn't require that much water

In Thailand they have one that grows in rivers, and when the river water rises, the stalk grows with it........

Basmati rice belongs to the long grain type: Indica

Other Asian countries mainly grow the Japonica type (short grain)

There is 'black' rice (high in Anthocyanin, making it red or dark red)

Sticky rice

Wild rice (original rice, not the cultivated ones that we eat)

I find basmati rice unsuitable for Asian cuisine like Chinese/peranakan food. Too dry and doesn't seem to soak up the juices from the food too well. I would prefer thai hom mali rice anytime. Of course if eating Indian food especially those with lots and lots of spicy sauce/gravy, basmati may be suitable.

Taste is acquired.
Taste is very subjective.
Presentation also affect taste.
Price influence taste too.

Normal, lah. Even the Adam Road hawker centre Malay food stalls selling nasi lemak serve long grain rice.
Go to North Indian restaurants more often.
While you are there, enjoy Palak Paneer.
