#LetsRoll: FashionCrazedFoodie Visits Express Rolls



I love healthy food, but to be honest, it's not always easy to find fresh fare on the go. For the most part, I prefer to consume light meals throughout the day. Salads, sushi, fruits, and fish are my top choices for daytime eating, but due to my hectic schedule, I rarely have time to pack a lunch. The latter means I'm on a constant search for eateries that cater to my appetite. Thankfully, my forage led me to Express Rolls.

Upon entering, I was immediately impressed by the warm reception I received from the staff, as well as the overall cleanliness and openness of the restaurant.
Express Rolls' menu features a moderate array of natural, fresh and organic pre-prepared foods, with several vegetarian options. The menu is divided into specified categories:
  • Sushi
  • Summer Roll Boxes
  • Bento Boxes & Bowls
  • Kid's Yum Boxes
  • Vegetarian
  • Starters, Soups & Salads
  • Party Trays
  • Drinks

A refrigerated case holds all of the food offerings at Express Rolls

On my first visit,  I was lucky enough to arrive during happy hour, which meant every item on the menu is buy one get one free (Mon-Thurs, 7:30p.m.-9:00 p.m.) I opted for a little bit of everything on the menu.

The High Roller Box (I added 2 pieces of a Shaggy Dog roll. Sold separately).

I ordered The Sliver of Everything Box, 1 High Roller Box, Trademark Summer Rolls, 2 Shaggy Dog Roll pieces, and a Shrimp Vermicelli Bowl. My absolute favorite was the Sliver of Everything Box. The portions were large enough for my children and myself to share, and I even had enough to pack a light, healthy lunch for my daughter's camp the next day.  My family enjoyed every single dish, and we've visited Express Rolls several times since our initial visit.


I'm partnering with Express Rolls for a fresh, healthy giveaway. If you like what you see in the above blog post, then you'd love a free gift card, right? Yes! There are 5 Express Rolls gift cards up for grabs. For your chance to win, leave a brief comment on why you think you should win. I'll pick and announce the winners on Thursday, June 30, 2016. Feel free to leave a tweet or comment on Instagram for consideration. Good luck!



  1. I think I should win because as a newly single mother with a full time job in education it's hard for me to prepare meals for my little ones everyday. I hate giving them fast food and a gift card is economically savvy for my tight budget.

    1. I totally understand the struggle of having to prepare meals everyday, especially in the heat of the summer. I agree with you on not wanting to give your children fast food as well.

  2. I rarely have time to pack a lunch. The latter means I'm on a constant search for eateries that cater to my appetite. shop now
