Vietnamese roll or sandwich aka Banh mi has gone viral these last few years in Sydney however there are only a few popular places with long customer queue. The influence of French colonisation in banh mi is baguettes, mayonnaise and pate while fish sauce and pickled vegetables are native Vietnamese.
There is a big Vietnamese community in Marrickville, I noticed there are lots of shop signage with Vietnamese writing such as accounting firms, asian groceries, barber shops and restaurants.
Marrickville Pork Roll (My Rating: 6/10)
We arrived at the shopfront around 1pm in the afternoon and luckily the queue was not long. The guy with the red shirt took our order and notify the staff preparing the meal of our order in Vietnamese. It was a tiny shop with every meals prepared in front of your eyes. The price is very reasonable with the highest price of banh mi charged at $4.50. The service was fast as all the ingredients were already prepared and only assembly needed.
