The Rolex is a popular food in Uganda that combines an omelette and mainly vegetables rolled in a chapati. Given that it is quick to prepare, a Rolex can be eaten at any time of the day, be it breakfast, lunch, supper, or snack.
The popular food event is a brainchild of Enid Mirembe, Miss Tourism Busoga 2015/16, and was awarded ‘Food Event of the Year’ at the 2019 Ekkula Pearl of Africa Tourism Awards.
