So I see a place in Old Town Alexandria,VA that is in all the ‘best places to eat’ lists. It has been featured in Southern Living and Washingtonian Magazines. And it was odd enough I had to give it a try: Meggrolls.
I think I’m ruined for life. It’s too sinful to resist:
It looked a little prettier before I bit into it, but on the left is a Buffalo Wing Eggroll, and on the right is the Chicken Parm Eggroll.
Yes, they’ve turned those meals into egg rolls. You usually find it as a fried noodle shell outside with a vegetable filling… and now you get a wild variety of gourmet fillings. And they’re good.
They said one roll is a snack, and two is a meal. I’m eating brunch, so I went for two. And I’m definitely full.
The Chicken Parm roll had mozzarella, provolone, and lemon basil ricotta, so it was a bit heavier. But the Buffalo chicken one is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten with buffalo sauce, chicken, and not much more (Inside a fried noodle), except for some celery on top.
If you’re ever in the area, it should be a planned food destination, just a half a step off of the Intersection of King Street & Fayette. It’s that good.
