Tasty Egg Roll, disguised as your standard suburban Chinese restaurant serving up cloying Chinese American favorites, is a Penang-street food heaven from Friday evenings through Sundays. While this location has been open for 22 years, the Penang-influenced menu only made an appearance in 2018, when Adeleine Ooi took over the restaurant. She decided to take on the challenge of recreating her hometown favorites in the Lone Star State. This Herculean task did not come easy. She flew back and forth from DFW to Penang, connected with hawker owners who were willing to share their lifetime of recipes and techniques. Seven dishes initially made it to their secret menu; the restaurant never advertised but the secret was out by way of Penangite, Malaysian and Indonesian customers. Today, these dishes are posted on the restaurant walls where they offer more than 25 mains, desserts and drinks, with the occasional specials posted on their Facebook page.
