After a 40 year career in the home improvement business, Michael Kauffman decided it was time for his something different. He says he’s had a passion for cooking and for the past few years he just hasn’t enjoyed the remodeling business as much as he should. A good friend of his told him to stop talking the about the food truck and just do it. So he took his old tool trailer and began transforming it, and he says, “if this all works out I’ve done my very last kitchen remodel.”
Four weeks ago he opened Awesome Eggrolls. You’ll find his trailer parked in the lot of Wayne Overhead Door in Centerville at the corner of State Route 48 and Lytle-Five Points Road. He plans on being open Monday through Friday 11am -4pm, but probably not if it’s raining. Last weekend he was open Saturday and Sunday to make up for some of the rainy days.
On a recent visit for lunch I tried his Special- 3 egg rolls, 1 side and a drink for just $8. I had his original egg roll – which is sausage, hamburger, cabbage, carrots and broccoli, his Philly (hamburger, peppers, onion, mushroom and provolone cheese) and his Chicken Philly.
He makes all his egg rolls onsite, with fresh ingredients, cooked to order. Served up with his own sweet and sour/soy sauce, available in mild or spicy. Egg rolls are $3 each, 2 for $5 or 3 for $7. His sides, currently crab rangoon of fried rice are $2 and soda’s and water are $1.
We’ll be back to visit soon and if you go visit, tell him DaytonDining sent you!
