In need of lots of Spring Rolls in Dallas

WonderPen Feb 11, 2007 01:09 PM

Am doing a Chinese New Year party that is getting bigger by the minute and I want to supplement my menu with purchased Spring Rolls (vegetarian) and possibly Egg Rolls (any flavor). My back up plan is to order from the Thai place at Greenville/Yale. Any other suggestions for large quantities (50), good price, good product?

    I am a little reluctant to suggest it, but Costco has some decent egg rolls in large quantities at a good price.

      Green Papaya on Oak Lawn has great spring rolls and they are big enough that you can cut them up into smaller pieces to serve.

        Make them! They're easy - even for a first time assembler.

          I was eating at BistroB on Walnut St in Garland and noticed a woman carrying out a HUGE order of fried egg rolls. I've never eaten theirs, but most everything I've eaten there is delicious, so I'm sure you couldn't go wrong.

            I noticed that Bistro B's lettering broadcast that they are an egg roll factory.

              They always have a pile of more than 50 ready to go at the cashier. $1 for 4. We always take a few home after we eat there.

                Bistro B has the best spring rolls and that dipping sauce is to die for!!! I have no idea what it is but I'm already wanting to go back!

            Kirk is right. Costco sells 72 spring rolls for $7.99. They're pretty good! You can make your own unique dipping sauces if you feel cheezy about it.

              While these aren't exactly Chinese egg rolls, I would highly recommend the vietnamese spring rolls that are sold in large quantities at Asian Grocery store (?name) in Carrolton at the corner of Josey Ln and Frankford Rd. They have both vegetarian and meat spring rolls that come in packs of 50 that are easy to fry. By far the highest quality frozen spring rolls I have found.

                I second the above recommendation - skip the bland spring rolls at Costco and head to an Asian grocery store. They usually have a full aisle of spring/egg rolls and potstickers. You will probably find every flavor under the sun there.

                  I second odkaty, they are not that hard to make and you will be astonished at the flavors you can create with such simple ingredients. You have plenty of time for a trial run and many sauces can make it more interesting, my favorite is Ginger Sauce MMMmmm

                The eggrolls from Best Thai in Las Colinas and the spring rolls (Goi Cuon Thit Nuog) from Pho Pasteur in Arlington are very good. I think both are about $1 a piece.

                I would pass on the store bought rolls if you have friends that actually enjoy eating asian food. There is a big difference between the two.

                I dont know why Im writing this reco considering Chinese New Years was about two months ago. hehe.
