Egg rolls with peanut butter

  • g

Many moons ago, I visited a chinese restaurant in Roselle (in NW suburbs) called Wing Hing. It had, among other things, the most amazing egg rolls... and they were made with peanut butter. I believe it has long since closed. I wondered if anyone knows of a chinese restaurant (within a large radius of the city) that makes their egg rolls with peanut butter. I have tried those at Chinalite, but found that they used too little oil (if I'm allowed to say that in this day & age). Any suggestions?

  1. I just had what you're looking for today in
    Chinatown at:
    Great Wall Chinese Restaurant
    2127 South China Place 312-808-9686
    I had a lunch special of Beef Teriyaki with 2
    egg rolls included. The egg rolls were about the
    best I've had in Chinatown. Home made and
    very peanut buttery. Good sweet sauce (not those stupid packets)
    and home made hot mustard.
    All for $4.95.

      Mr. B.,

      Thanks for the suggestion. While I've been to The Great Wall before, I'd never tried the egg rolls...and right you are. These are some of the pea-nuttiest egg rolls I've ever tasted. Liked 'em so much that i brought some home.

      All of my previous visits to The Great Wall centered around their BBQ meats, which are consistently very good.

      E.R.
