HAVE YOU EVER WONDER WHY IT WAS NAMED THAT WAY? IS EGG ONE OF THE INGREDIENTS?
Customers often question if the egg roll actually contains egg. The answer is absolutely not! Busaba's egg roll is made with a thin sheet of which which is then filled with our homemade stuffing. We use tapioca flour as the adhesive.
WE SERVE TWO VERSIONS OF THE EGG ROLL; VEGETABLE AND CHICKEN
The vegetable egg roll's stuffing is composed of organic sweet potato , green cabbage, carrot, and vermicelli noodles.
The chicken egg roll's stuffing contains ground chicken, taro, black fungus, and the rest of the ingredients included in the vegetable egg roll.
The egg rolls are then seasoned with sea salt, sugar, and black pepper.
At Busaba, the egg rolls are served deep fried with a side of homemade plum sauce, which contains sugar, vinegar, sea salt, pickled garlic, and pickled plum.
There are other versions of egg rolls served in other Asian restaurants including those with thick & bubbly wrappers or thin & crishpy rice paper wrapper. The former ones tend to contain egg in the wrapper.
Busaba's version, however, is commonly served in Thailand. This dish is indeed a Chiness creation but is also well accepted and adopted by Thais. In Thailand, you will certainly find this item served in Chinese restaurants, possibly some Thai restaurants, and street carts. The stuffings are however, up the chef's imagination. We have seen pork, shrimp, crab, you name it and it is probably made its way into an egg roll, served in Thailand.
