Readers stuff inbox with egg roll ideas

It’s a refrain I hear all the time: It’s impossible to get a good egg roll anymore, especially in Las Vegas. But readers have several suggestions for Robert Trube, who’s looking for old-fashioned, thick egg rolls.

Mamie Glorioso, Karen Galowitch and Ray Moreton recommended New York Chinese Restaurant at 9430 W. Lake Mead Blvd. and 3545 S. Fort Apache Road; Shirley E. Kehrer suggested Great Wall Chinese Restaurant at 2202 W. Charleston Blvd. (adding that the best egg rolls are served at dinner, with the smaller ones served with the lunch specials); Janet Dietz recommended the Imperial Egg Rolls at Chinese Village Restaurant at 608 N. Rainbow Blvd.; and Annette Soffa and Martin Edelbaum recommended Golden China at 3830 E. Flamingo Road. …

For Mary Johnson, who’s looking for a restaurant that serves pierogi, Moreton suggested the Grand Lux Cafes at The Venetian, 3355 Las Vegas Blvd. South, and the Palazzo, 3325 Las Vegas Blvd. South, where he said the potato-and-cheese spring roll appetizers are just like pierogi, but in a lighter wrapper. "Fooled my father," he added. …

For Rick Siegel, Barbara Roth e-mailed that acid-free coffee is available at www.TylersCoffees.com (or call 800-293-0530) and Dave Braun recommended the Chemex coffeemaker and filters, available from www.Chemexcoffeemaker. com (or call 800-243-6399). …
