Meatball - Nem Nuong
A staple in Vietnamese cuisine, the banh mi came about during the French colonization of Vietnam and brought about this beloved dish. The banh mi consists of a french baguette topped with vegetables such as pickled carrots and daikon, cucumbers, cilantro, and peppers. While traditionally eaten with pork, we offer many different proteins to have in your banh mi regardless of your dietary preferences.
Our Pho (Chicken & Beef Noodle Soup
While we do pride ourselves on offering the big names of traditional Vietnamese food, we do have some things that stand out.
Our signature proteins, which can be added to our rice, noodles, and sandwiches, are what we have built Fresh Roll upon. All our protein options are charbroiled on the grill to create a flavor that stovetop cooking or boiling cannot compare to. We have very traditional options of chicken and pork, but also other specialty items like our nem nuong.
Nem nuong is a traditional Vietnamese pork sausage. Like all our proteins, the nem nuong is made daily and is extremely popular back in the streets of Vietnam. Nem nuong (pictured on the right) is traditionally eaten inside spring rolls, but we wanted to bring that amazing flavor to all our other dishes as well.
With everything you have read on this page about our specialities along with our regular items. We pride ourselves in making our food in the best way possible. We don't cut corners at the expense our our customers and their experience here.

Banh Mi (Sandwich)
Which is without doubt, the most popular Vietnamese dish that is eaten all around the world. Noodle soup that can vary between meats such as beef and chicken, and within the bowl, lies many cuts of beef or chicken. While we take steps on our menu to create a more modern flavor, this is one of the recipes we couldn't change for the better. Using traditional herbs and spices and beef bones, we cook the broth for over 24 hours to create a rich and deep broth that proves good things in life are worth waiting for. If beef isn't to your liking, we also offer a traditional chicken pho.
The dish we owe our name to, is one of our premier items. This dish consisting of the freshest vegetables, rice noodles, and our signature grilled meats bring this dish to a new level. A notable thing about this are our use of grilled meats as opposed to the traditional boiled pork and boiled shrimp. We are most proud of the fact that we can offer our spring rolls as a fast and healthy addition to your fast and healthy lifestyle. Our spring rolls, made hourly, get you in and out of Fresh Roll in no time at all.
Our chicken pho - features a broth we reworked to contain NO MSG and we only use the best chicken from Draper Valley Farms which are organic, cage-free, and antibiotic free.
