Rice is an uncountable noun, and there is no plural form for it shown in the dictionary. How can "we'll have two rices" be correct?

It can be correct if someone whose first language is English says it in a Thai restaurant. However, an ESL student from Thailand would most likely be called out on it if he or she said it in an ESL classroom.
