"Polynesian" style Chinese restaurants

BabyBee | Sep 29, 200612:02 PM     80

Hi all! I'm looking for some verification that I am not crazy down here in Florida! My husband and I are both originally from New Hampshire (Nashua) and we were just talking about the Chinese restaurants up there. Chinese food in Florida IS NOT THE SAME! Specifially, the egg rolls. Here they are filled with chunky pieces of cabbage and carrots and sometimes have a tiny shrimp stuffed in there. But up in Nashua the food was more of a Hawaiian or Polynesian kind - the egg rolls were filled with something chopped and shredded very fine. I don't know if any of the restaurants we used to go to are still there -- The Kahala, Haluwa, and Singapore??

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?! And, even better, would anyone happen to have any kind of recipe for those egg rolls?! I would LOVE to have it!!

Thanks for any insight ;-)
