Tea Rolls and a Moroccan Dish?  
Hi, Everyone!

I just joined the community because I'm such a food enthusiast, and have recently acquired a delightful flare for more exotic foods. Just the other week, I happened to be in Northampton and Amherst, MA, towns very well known for its diverse ethnic and cultural cuisine.

If you haven't already, you must try the restaurant Fresh Side in...Amherst? It's all natural, Asian-infused food. They bring tea right out to you with fresh fruit seeping in it; it's amazing. Also worthy of note is what they call "Tea Rolls." That was the first time EVER I've come across them. They were about the size of sandwich wraps, and stuffed with all sorts of different things, hot or cold, depending on your preferences. I had one with curried rice and chicken, and another with vermecelli, carrots, tofu, and water chestnuts. They're incredible, and come in different varieties. Is anyone familiar with them, and why are they so scarce??!! How to make?

Also, I was hoping I could get the name of a Moroccan dish I had in Northampton (can't remember the place). But basically, it was chicken on-the-bone, cooked with sweet white onions, Kalamata-like olives, raisins, and almonds. It was to die for, and I can't recall the dish. Unique mingling of flavors, and the onions are very mild, not too oniony.

Thanks, everyone!

Welcome :)
THis community has been a but quiet as of recently, as my co-mod is very busy with RL and me, too. But I hope to get it more active again before Christmas.
As I live in Europe, I won't have a chance to visit the place you mentioned but maybe American reader pick it up.
Just look around and hopefully someone can help you with the recipe you are looking for, I am a bit lost atm :)
