Ok, so this is the same egg roll you can get at any Cantonese-American takeout joint.

At $2, however, this egg roll is anywhere from $.50-1.50 more expensive than at most places around the city.

Even if you take into account the fact that Wok 88 is a casual sit-down eatery, a lot of other similarly styled restaurants don’t charge quite that much.

So, yes: It was fine, but maybe not $2 fine.
