Best cold spring rolls in T.O. ?

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy a bunch of cold rolls/salad rolls for a party and want to know where they have the best ones for a decent price. Downtown or west is preferred.

    There is a great Vietnamese place called "Green Bamboo" in the east end (Midland and Sheppard). They make shrimp and pork cold rolls with peanut sauce or a vegetarian ones with tofu, mango and sweet chilli sauce. They make wonderful fried spring rolls made with shrimp and chicken. I believe they cater as well - www.greenbamboo.ca

      I really like the cold veggie rolls at green mango on royal york and bloor. I won't claim they are the best, but they are definately tasty. Even better accompanied by their peanut sauce.

      i really love the jicama, egg and sausage/pork fresh rolls at pho phuong. they're fresh, a little unique and wonderfully put together. they surprise everyone i've ever had try them even though fresh rolls are de jour for them.

          that is exactly the pho phuong i mean, lucky you ;)

          that particular mixture of fillings is in my regular rotation.

            vanipha - it is on st. clair west near Christie. i promise you they have the best cold salad rolls you have EVER tasted. so fresh, always tightly rolled options, for veggie, duck or shrimp. i have served them at over 25 parties and always get rave reviews.

              Thanks to all - we decided to go with Vanipha - very tasty and attractive. The veg roll at Pho Phuong was totally bland!

                were you originally asking about veg rolls? the jicama, egg, sausage ones are the only ones i would consider exceptional.
