Bordering Holland and Zeeland, Eggroll Express is a wonderful central location for many commuters between the cities. Though it may not look like much on the surface this place will not leave you disappointed.
When I first walked in I saw a very small dining area and the menu plastered all over the walls. This is a very common layout for fast food Chinese restaurants in the US. I was told about this place from one of my tattoo artists Matt who swears this is amazing Chinese food. Even with his recommendation I was skeptical but had to give it a try because some of the best food in the world comes from some of the oddest and beat down places.
I looked over the menu and ordered the Orange Chicken lunch special. That included fried rice and 2 crab-meat rangoons. I love crabmeat rangoons so was already nervous for how these would taste. The total was around 5 dollars which is a very good price for how much food you get.
My food arrived and I sat down and it smelled great. I took a bite of the orange chicken first and it was real tasty. The orange sauce was very different then others I have tried before and I could definitely taste a freshness and citrus flavor to it. I asked Han if he makes his own sauces and he said all his sauces and mixtures are made from scratch and have been since they opened. I love when a restaurant doesn’t use pre-made sauces or pre-marinated meats or such for their recipes. I next took a bite of the rangoon and it was wonderful. I looked in and saw a large pink chunk of crab and cheese gooing out which made me even more happy. I dipped my rangoons in the homemade sweet & sour and went to town.
In the end I say this place has made me remember to not judge a book by its cover. With that said enjoy I know I’ll be back for more.
