Fresh spring rolls in Berkeley/Oakland/etc.?

Chestnut | Dec 3, 200508:22 PM     8

Although bread is easily one of my favorite foods, a steady diet for the past several weeks of bread, blue cheese, and Cheese Board pizza has left my stomach in dire need of degreasing. I find myself fantasizing about light, healthy, and practically greaseless foods that are ideally non-bread based - e.g., nigiri sushi, cucumber rolls, pho. Not even ramen will do (I can't bear to eat any ramen but Ryowa's tonkotsu broth version, and even that is far too rich for my tired stomach).

Which brings me to my latest pursuit: fresh spring rolls. In the past, I have tried Le Petite Cheval's version, which I remember as unimpressive. Does anyone have suggestions for great fresh (non-fried) spring rolls that I could find in Berkeley, Oakland, El Cerrito, Albany, etc.? Take-out preferred. I also welcome suggestions for other non-greasy, fresh-tasting foods. Thanks!
