Angela Fuller, who goes by the name Egg Roll Queen, has been making specialty vegetarian egg rolls for three decades now, experimenting with a variety of fillings. After purchasing a spoiled egg roll one day 25 years ago, she decided she could do better. But since eggrolls weren't common in Harlem at the time, she went to the library to do research, then started shopping for ingredients in Chinatown.
The Queen's flavors range from Barbeque Tofu to Caribbean to Collard Soul, and have been sold in venues ranging from Fairway, to Gourmet Garage, to Columbia University, to Watkins Health Food Store. Fuller is a member of the Hot Bread Kitchen Incubator program at La Marqueta in East Harlem.
