Express Rolls recently opened a brand new location on the corner of Shepard and Westheimer (in the shopping center with Randall’s) last week and I have the full scoop + a GIVEAWAY below!
I was reading an article written by Phaedra Cook, Food Editor over at Houston Press about the about of time folks actually have on their lunch breaks. The summation of the article was basically that most people aren’t granted the luxury of two hour lunches, and the majority of need to get in and out, and back to work. Express Rolls offers diners just that!
With their convenient, casual and fast service guests can be in and out in minutes! As this was their grand opening I decided to dine in, so that I could get the full picture of how the process works. The open refrigerator concept of very similar to that of a Snap Kitchen or My Fit Foods minus the cold pressed juices.
Express Rolls offers Sushi, Bento Boxes, V-Bowls, Rice Bowls, Spring & Summer Rolls, Asian Soups & Salads, Kid & Vegetarian Options, basically everything you’d get from a sit down sushi spot. When I arrived for the grand opening I was greeted and immediately whisked away towards shelves lined with brightly packaged, assorted grab and go containers.
Though I enjoy traditional sushi, I find myself leaning more towards hot options for lunch. So during my visit to Express Rolls my lunch date and I ordered the grilled chicken and shrimp v-bowls (Vermicelli), vegetable gyoza, miso and avocado soup, edamame, their signature fruit roll and two sushi pieces (Shaggy dog and Escolar). With such a hefty order we just knew this was going to cost a fortunate, but it totaled up to $37.00 ($18.50 pp) including two bottled drinks. That’s what we usually spend on a typical outing AND we got to take what we didn’t finish home. That’s what makes the packaging genius.
