one is darker and filled with pork, the other is smaller and a lighter color, and at the best places, has shrimp as the primary meat. However, I see that vary from region to region depending upon many things, including if the area is filled with $9 bufet type places and fast chinese food (like Atlanta). That seems to bring DOWN the overall quality of all the oferings.

egg rolls vs spring rolls, don't forget - the wrapper is different too. Spring rolls have a much thinner wrapper.

Oh come on Steph. Just admit it. All you have for restaurants out there are "drive thru adobe bricks" (very low fiber) and the "Tortillas and Scorpions" chain of restaurants!

Well, jimmypoo, you'd be amazed by the number of Chinese restaurants located in Los Alamos (where my parents live). Those ones are pretty good. There are a couple decent ones here in Santa Fe too.

But don't knock those "drive thru adobe bricks"

Baja Tacos is pretty good - they've got great salsa. Chiliworks in Los Alamos has kickass breakfast burritos. Felipe's tacos is ok. So is El Parasol. Posa's makes great tamales. La Choza has killer salsa & enchiladas. I've been told their carne adovada is fantastic. Blue Corn Cafe is rather trendy & touristy, the chile's not hot but it's flavorful. I know plenty of people who frequent Castro's for their tortilla burgers. And, while on the subject of burgers, Blake's Lotaburger is a local NM legend. They've got damn good green chile cheeseburgers. Tortilla Flats is odd, but that's ok because they're closing for renovation (will re-open in May). Tomasita's is very well known & I think it was once a train station. I've always thought they were overrated. The Shed is apparently THE place to go for New Mexican cuisine.

A friend of mine married a woman while stationed in Korea, man
her shrimp spring/egg rolls are to die for. She folds them over
and sort of pinches them together on 2 sides. They're sort of
triangle shaped.

Traditionally Chinese deep-fried egg rolls are stuffed with shredded stuffing such as cabages, black mushrooms, carrots, green onions and pork. These egg rolls are wrapped in square wonton wrappings.

Vietnamese deep-fried egg rolls have the same stuffing that include chopped clear (a.k.a. cellophane)noodles. These are wrapped in slightly salted rice (clear) paper.

Vietnamese Spring rolls have white thin rice noodle (a.k.a. vercimille - sp?) , boiled sliced of pork and shrimps, Asian basil leaves, and shredded lettuce. These are wrapped in the same type of thin rice paper. However, they are not deep-fried. Hence, more healthy.

Of course, there are many variations of these rolls depending on the regions of the cuisine.

I think the Summer rolls are a recent creation. I have tried at at California Kitchen Pizza. I'd stick with my all time fav Spring rolls. BTW, there are Imperial rolls as well. They could be a variation of either Egg rolls or Spring rolls. The most inedible ones are Drum rolls ... grinning smiley

Those sound like won tons - the ones I've made are like you describe, stuffed with meat.



The egg rolls I make are stuffed with chopped and stir-fried bok choy, Chinese cabbage, green onions, carrots, bean sprouts, and ground beef or pork. I use the large square egg roll wrappers, not the smaller square won ton wrappers, then deep fry them.
