Super Eggroll Restaurant, San Jose
Not to be confused with King Eggroll, this was a random shop that we went to out of sheer convenience tonight (445 Blossom Hill Road, 281-2847). Like King Eggroll, they had a number of things beyond their namesake dish available, particularly in the form of those cafeteria style troughs. But they also had things like Hawaiian plate lunches, if I saw it correctly.
Well, despite the name, the best thing here that I tasted was the phở, whose broth was smoother than others, and yet was still full of flavor. Check out those freakishly large basil leaves they gave us; it's as if all of the produce in California is on steroids or something.
And sure, the egg rolls were fine, but it's been so long since I've had King Eggroll that I can't really make a proper comparison. I will say though that those Mac N Rolls from Soulnese yesterday were still much more unique to me. Similarly, the bánh mì was edible, but my preference is still for Lee's.
