We moved to S. Florida about 10 years ago and the Chinese food is awful. Boston style is unique. I learned to cook most of the foods before I left MA (taking a course from a wonderful Chinese lady who owned a grocery store in Burlington, MA). I can make the spare ribs. I can make two types of chicken wings -- one is the garlicy type which was served in these restaurants from when I was a little girl and the other is the Kowloon style which is deeply fried. I can make lobster sauce. I have a recipe for beef lo mein and fried rice, too. I can even make pork strips and crab rangoons. They are all wonderful and we have Chinese night about once a month. But I cann't get the recipe for egg rolls. I went to Kowloon and they said that their recipe is a secret. I tried at Oriental Jade and they laughed. I would be eternally grateful to get this recipe. I travel to MA 3-4 times a year and always take home 4 orders (8) of egg rolls when I come back. I will re-fry them and they taste really good that way. Does anyone have that recipe? I only need to know what goes into making the filling. I can do the wrapping on my own. Please write to me at: hytzipky0719@bellsouth.net if you have this recipe. I will share what I have with you. Thank you.
