“Someone sold their soul to be able to make their vegan tuna roll this good.”
- My friend upon their first bite of ROLLN’s Avocado & Vegan Tuna
In the looming and beautiful shadow of the Flatiron district sits a small sushi oasis named ROLLN. This sushi sanctuary sits at the unique location of 38 East 23rd st, doors open to welcome flatiron workers and park frolickers alike. Upon entering, one is immediately struck by the cleanliness of the eatery. The contrast between the dusty weathered streets versus the smell of fresh, fragrant rice is tangibly refreshing and invigorating. Be prepared to breathe in and let all your senses take a vacation here.
The rolls themselves are placed neatly together in a glass display, steam from their creation still rises off the nori indicating their fresh and delicious status. From California to Teriyaki Chicken to Salmon Avocado roll, all of these options sit perfectly and briefly stacked until their inevitable food adoption. The only hard part of eating food this good is deciding what to try first.
ROLLN is the ongoing exploration between Australian Expats: David Tam and Gavin Tseng. This endeavoring partnership sought to bring fresh and hand rolled eats to their community and source their ingredients from certified sustainable and organic distributors only. With proprietary quinoa-based rolls, vegan options and a 100% gluten free establishment, ROLLN continues to raise the bar on quality and food accessibility. Other establishments, take note.
