Thick-Skinned Egg Rolls - Now 'till 09/28

I mentioned this in a Fair-related topic, but thought I'd post a heads-up for the many hounds who longingly seek to find the elusive thick-skinned egg rolls they remember from childhood out here, or from the east coast. As always, they are available at the L.A. County Fair, at the incongruously-named "Seafood and Thai" vendors, which are neither particularly Thai nor Seafood. They have tasty meat cooked on a skewer with teriyaki-ish sauce (beef or pork), served in combo plate form with fried rice & chow mein, similar to Panda Express.

But they also have thick-skinned egg rolls, served with or without sweet & sour sauce. They're not the greatest in the world (I haven't really noticed if they even have meat in them; certainly no red-tinged pork), but the skin is just right, and the flavor isn't wrong. Maybe a tad bland, but not wrong (unlike the wrongly-flavored ones sold at Panda Express or frozen at Trader Joe's - they look right but taste so wrong).
