Express Rolls Opens in Montrose + Giveaway

Express Rolls, based in Houston, TX, is a fresh healthy eatery that encompasses a fast-casual restaurant experience, offering  Sushi, Bento Boxes, V-Bowls, Rice Bowls, Spring & Summer Rolls, Asian Soups & Salads, Kid & Vegetarian Options. Their Asian fusion menu has a variety of options from traditional to original. All mindfully created to taste with the highest quality of ingredients. Express Rolls prides themselves on bringing the freshest healthiest food to their consumers, in the quickest way possible, using the best technology.

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. The majority of us need to get in and out, and back to work. Express Rolls offers patrons 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.  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. All Items can be found on lit 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. During my visit to Express Rolls my lunch date and I ordered a variety of items. The grilled chicken and shrimp v-bowls (Vermicelli), vegetable gyoza, miso and avocado soup and edamame were are highly suggested. Their signature fruit roll are fun, healthy and tasty as well.

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.

Sushi makes the world go 'round. I deserve the giftcard because I frequent the area and am always in the mood for sushi, but am discouraged to stop in because it takes a while, and in Houston a long lunch isn't always possible. I am interested to check it out and put it in my rotation!
