I do. When I open the bag of takeout I say "Does anyone want the rice?"

An English speaker will say “the rice” or “the sandwich” when referring to particular rice or a particular sandwich, e.g. “There were beans, rice, a sandwich, and an apple in that bag. She has the beans and the apple. He has the rice and the sandwich.”
