Compliments to the Chef: The Egg Roll Lady

6 Aug

If it’s summertime, and you happen to find yourself on the island of Martha’s Vineyard (off the coast of Massachusetts), do yourself a favor and make an effort to meet the Egg Roll Lady. You’ll likely find her, Thi Khen Tran that is, at the West Tisbury Farmers Market in the booth that’s formed the longest line. Originally from Vietnam, Khen has been a prominent feature of this market since 1986, when she got her start selling flowers and lettuce. Backed by the support from friends and family who couldn’t get enough of her flavors, Khen eventually shifted her focus to jaw-droppingly fresh and delicious cold rolls, egg rolls, dumplings and noodle salads. With over twenty years in the business, it’s easy to understand why Thi Khen Tran is the matriarch of Vineyard-Asian eats.
