Archie's Rueben Egg Rolls

By Anna Faller | Feb. 11, 2022

Archie’s Fresh Food Truck in Traverse City takes eating local to a whole new level — specifically, that of the “Average Joe.” “We want people to know that they don’t have to spend $100 for all-local foods,” says chef Jon Petrie. “These things are all at our fingertips — you just have to search for it a bit.” Their Reuben Egg Rolls, however, are a no-brainer. A fresh take on classic brewery fare, this spanking-new starter packs all the flavor of a full-sized sammie and presents it in a bite-sized package. Each roll is stuffed with sauerkraut, Ida Valley Farms corned beef, and strings of ooey-gooey Swiss. From there, each deconstructed sub is tightly encased in a rice-noodle wrapper, before a quick deep-fry closes the deal. Finished in the oven and served alongside scratch-made Thousand Island dip, this delicious shareable plate is best paired with friends — and maybe an elastic waistband. $13 for 3 rolls. Find it at The Workshop Brewing Company, 221 Garland Street, Traverse City. (989) 745-5233,
