The Beef Roll needs no introduction here.
101 Noodle started it, Jonathan Gold made it famous (and ubiquitous), and now the 'Hounds are going to rank them.
My Top 5 Beef Rolls:
2. Beijing Pie House
3. Mama's Lu
4. 101 Noodle
5. Mandarin Noodle House (Temple City)
Great topic ipse and thanks for the Beijing Pie House rec. I've never thought to order it there. I've pretty much stuck to the xian bing and the homeland meat cake.
Thanks also to js for the Liang's Kitchen rec as I've not been there.
I guess it's time to branch out from both the Alhambra and Irvine locations of 101 for my beef roll cravings.
Just to clarify, do you mean Easy Earthen? I've only been able to get beef rolls at the newer, smaller location at Colima & Fullerton. Waitress at Earthen told me they didn't have them, that they were only available at Easy Earthen, something the guy running Easy Earthen corroborated...or do you have some pull we aren't aware of?
Yes, Easy Earthen's are quite good. I also like Mama's Kitchen and 101 Noodle House.
I don't really go out for this dish much but I rather like the iteration at JTYH, I thought their pancake itself was really nice and flaky while not being greasy. You don't suffer from the onion ring syndrome where it falls apart as you bite it.
