Like many here, I've long been a fan of the beef rolls at 101 Noodle Express in the SGV. Sadly, on my last few visits, I've noticed that the quality has slid very far downhill. The first time, I thought maybe it was a fluke, maybe they just took exception to my shoddy Chinese language skills and decided to stint me. But after the third incident of sad, anemic, beef rolls, I have no choice but to conclude that they have decided that they no longer need to try. What were once glorious, plump rolls bursting with beef, cilantro, and that wonderful sauce, are now less than half the girth, with a single layer (barely) of beef and a mere swipe of sauce. I brought some home for my sister, and they confused her - she thought they were vegetarian at first because she couldn't detect the meat.
So on to the next place. The great thing about the SGV is that there's always something new and always someone trying to be better. So any tips out there for the next new place for beef rolls? :)
