Memphis Minnie's Curiously Strange East-West Fusion

Usually, when we visit Memphis Minnie's Barbecue Joint and Smokehouse (576 Haight at Steiner), there's little anyone or anything can do to distract us from the fried catfish and banana pudding. We've barely taken the time to explore the menu beyond those personal delights before last night, when we discovered a strange East-West fusion of sorts. Minnie's BBQ pork rolls ($5.95) are basically the ultimate egg roll, filled with a generous heap of smoked, pulled pork, fried to an almost dangerous crisp, and served with a chipotle aioli. Here's hoping that spare rib chow mein is next.
