King Eggroll is one of my favorite spots to revisit when I go back to the Bay Area. My siblings and I have developed a tradition to go at least once a year, usually around Christmas or New Year’s. After introducing Mr. K to the famed egg rolls a few years ago, he’s become just as addicted.
The popular Vietnamese-owned chain has four locations. It offers some dim sum items, fast food Chinese, but where it makes most of its money is with its egg rolls and fried chicken. People order trays of each and they are a very popular potluck party food.
We are more a fan of the egg rolls than the chicken. The chicken is crunchy but lacks seasoning and is a tad expensive at $.70 a piece for a small wing.
The egg rolls here are so popular because they are light and crispy and have a very flavorful filling: a mixture of shredded vegetables, glass noodles, ground meat, and salt and pepper seasoning.
We usually buy a 30 piece tray, eat quite a few, and save some leftovers which we reheat by pan-frying or putting in the toaster oven.
If you’re in the Bay Area for a visit, it’s definitely worth a try.
