NY Hard Rolls Disappointment!
I haven't been back to upstate NY in 7 years. I so, missed the Hard Rolls. Can't get anything like the Hard Rolls in NY. Well, went to visit family finally! Went out to eat in a well know diner. Couldn't wait to order a cheeseburger with onions on a lucious hard roll. Disappointment. Got the same soft mushy roll that seems to have taken over. I asked the waitress what happened to the hard rolls and her response was we just can't get them anymore. I never had any problems ever getting a proper hard roll before, so it likes like the New York Hard Roll [in the area I went to} no longer lives!
We went to another diner just to see if they had the great NY Hard Rolls. No luck! Maybe you can still get them in NYC and other cities but not in Schenectady. Anyway, we didn't have time to check out any other places. I hear Mastrianni's bakery is still open but didn't get a chance to see if they still made them like I was used too.
