They See Me Rolln: Rolln Sushi (NEW)

🎶“They see me Rolln, they hatin’, patrolling tryin’ to catch me eating sushi”🎶

Fresh in from the coast of sunny Australia comes an innovative sushi restaurant looking to change the way we think about hand rolls. Noticing that there was a lack of affordable sushi in his new hometown of NYC, founder David Tam decided to bring a little of his Australian secret sauce to our streets. 

Rolln focuses on doing one thing, and doing that one thing extraordinarily well: Handrolls. So if you have an irrational fear of chopsticks (it’s understandable), look no further for your sushi fix, simply grab and enjoy. 

All of their handrolls are made fresh each day in-house with sustainable seafood, organic vegetables and handcrafted sauces. These are not your traditional cone shaped handrolls, but rather one you may find in the hands of an Australian student on “sushi day” at school. Don’t be fooled however, these are not simply a kids treat. 

Try their unique take on a deli classic, a tuna salad handroll, packed with high quality Spanish tuna and a crunch of fresh cucumber, that’ll have you rethinking how you order sushi. 

Looking for something more traditional? Take a bite out of the salmon avocado roll, stuffed with fresh sustainably sourced salmon, paired with avocados ripened in-house for the perfect texture in every chomp. 

Don’t call it quits there. Rolln offers a unique quinoa handroll for when you’re tired of the traditional quinoa preparations you’ve had one hundred times over. Start with a classic California roll, but choose the path less taken and opt for quinoa instead of rice, you won’t be disappointed. It may just be your new favorite way to enjoy the ancient grain!


Hey, Handsome Fella. (NEW! & FREE SAMPLE!!) 🍚 🍃

Korean cuisine never looked so good! Handsome Rice brings all the fresh flavors of Korea right to your desk. 

Handsome Rice specializes in Dosirak, which refers to the Korean-style lunchbox typically made at home. Similar to Japanese bento or Indian tiffin, they are made with a variety of vegetables and meat, paired with pickled vegetables and rice.

The founder of Handsome rice, Hansong Kim, is a highly experienced chef with a venerable gourmet background. Working in the menu development and franchising industry for years, Chef Kim opened his own brand focusing on creating healthy and delicious Korean dishes. A celebrity chef in Korea, Hansong utilizes the Handsome Rice kitchen to serve fresh Korean food with modern touches. 

For many of the dishes, freshly cut vegetables with house-made small batch sauces, marinated meats, and grilled to order proteins sit atop a bed of fluffy rice.

Go for a classic – traditional Korean Bulgogi. Sweet soy sauce-marinated rib eye & Roasted vegetables is layered atop a bed of perfectly cooked Korean purple rice. Want to try something new? Opt for the Jeyuk – Gochujang (spicy Korean sauce) marinated pork with roasted vegetables atop that delicious portion of rice. Just because you can’t pronounce it yet, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. 

The side dishes, like the pork and spinach dumplings, are all made with fresh ingredients. Value your vegetables? The vegetable dumplings offer a lighter yet equally delicious treat!

For more healthy options, try the juicy and delicious sous vide chicken and avocado plate. A healthy helping of good fats next to high-protein chicken breast that is slowly cooked then finished on the grill- YUM! Wanna go even lighter but keep the full flavor? Order the bibimbap for a bevy of veggies and seaweed atop Korean purple rice with a spicy Korean sauce!
