Rollin' in Flavor: A Unique Cigar-Inspired Dining Experience

It was such a surprise when I saw “Cigar Spring Rolls” on the menu when I was ordering dim sums. I am a cigar lover so I ordered the dim sum with much expectation.


The moment these cigar-like spring rolls arrived at my table, they were very eye catching. Neatly rolled and wrapped in a brown wrapper, they bear an uncanny resemblance to a cigar. The golden-brown hue of the lightly fried wrapper adds to the illusion, while delicate fresh herbs serves as the 'cigar's' finishing touch. This unique presentation creates a sense of anticipation and sets the stage for an extraordinary dining experience. With the labels of the “cigar”, it is just simple and funny.


Just like a cigar reveals layers of aroma and complexity, biting into these spring rolls unravels a symphony of flavors. The initial crunch of the crispy wrapper gives way to a medley of ingredients tucked inside. The filling typically consists of fresh vegetables, fragrant herbs, and shrimp. These ingredients blend harmoniously, offering a balance of textures and tastes that dance on your palate.


The cigar-like spring rolls beautifully blend cultural traditions, marrying the concept of cigars with the Asian culinary art of spring rolls. I like this fusion because it showcases the creativity and innovation inherent in gastronomy.
