Freshroll Vietnamese Rolls & Bowls

Pin It Now!
Freshroll is a Chipotle style concept with Vietnamese cuisine.  Its a nice food option in the Metreon when you are looking for something healthy and fresh tasting.
Freshroll serves up a choice of spring rolls, sandwiches (banh mi), or rice/noodle bowl.  You customize the protein, veggie filling, and sauce. 
I chose the lemongrass pork freshroll (spring roll) with their standard veggie filling (lettuce, bean sprouts, jalapenos, cucumbers, pineapple). 
Overall, I love the customizing concept and the meat is juicy and flavorful, but the rolling technique is just as bad as if I rolled it myself.  The rolls are hard to eat without all the ingredients falling out.  I was particularly curious about how the pineapple would taste in the roll, but it made the roll taste fresh.
  There are four dipping sauces to choose from:  peanut, citrus ginger, sweet & sour chili, and Vietnamese vinaigrette (which is the standard fish sauce).  I chose the Vietnamese vinaigrette, which was surprisingly good, but not as fishy as the regular Vietnamese restaurants.
