Marrickville Pork Roll

If you’ve ever driven past Illawarra Road and noticed a long line, it’s most likely for this place.  These guys are famous for their Vietnamese bánh mì – a crunchy baguette swiped with pate and mayo, barbeque pork, fresh herbs, chilli and pickles.  It may not sound like much, but trust us, this roll rules them all.
