Quest for Ottawa-Style Eggrolls in The Lower Mainland

SherBel | Oct 27, 2010 01:03 PM

If you've never had eggrolls from a place like The Golden Palace in Ottawa, you may not know what I'm talking about.

In BC we've only found 'springrolls'; typically a veggie filling in a thin, multilayered wrapping. Often dripping with fat. The product that we seek is a finely chopped, meaty (porky) filling in a thick eggroll wrapper, usually flattened at each end, but occasionally open-ended. (Open-ended is less desirable, but we're desperate.) These yummy darlings are deep-fried, but tend to be non-greasy....just crispy.

We live in Maple Ridge, but the eggroll craving hubster works in downtown Vanc., so location is not an issue. We'd even go to the island or the Sunshine coast!

Is there such a thing here?
