One of the newest and most highly anticipated additions to the Old Town food scene is Meggrolls. Owner Meghan Baroody has put a unique spin on the traditional egg roll and is quickly gaining fans with her tasty offerings.
Meggrolls offers classic, comfort-food flavors inside the crispy crust of an egg roll. Genius, right? We had the pleasure of tasting a few flavors and they are out of this world delicious! My personal favorite would have to be the Buffalo Chicken Wing roll which comes complete with a small stalk of celery atop the roll and your choice of ranch or bleu cheese. Other flavors you’ll find on the menu include Chicken Parm, Gyro, Chorizo Poblano, Four Cheese and Broccoli, and Burger. There’s also a variety of slaws to accompany your meggrolls as well as hand-cut, boardwalk fries!
Meggrolls has already developed somewhat of a cult-like following from its food truck days in Arlington, so we're so pleased to have it a little closer to our neck of the woods. We got a chance to chat briefly with Meghan and in just the short time meeting her, you can see how hard she’s worked to bring this dream of hers to fruition. Meghan, being an Alexandria native and having worked as a bartender for several years in Old town, is thrilled to have her first storefront in the place she calls home. Meghan is still doing some special food truck events here and there as well as offering catering.
The Washingtonian dubbed Meggrolls as one of a few must-try new restaurant’s and we’re happy to second that notion!
