Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

This Week's Food News: Bánh mì

Bánh mì – these tasty Vietnamese baguettes continue to roll out across town. This means you no longer have to take the trek down to that ever-popular hole in the wall, Marrickville Pork Roll, for your crusty French bread, pork, pate and pickled vegetable fix. In Enmore, Great Aunty Three has basically revolutionised the pre-gig healthy snacking options for Enmore Theatre-goers. And now, Darlinghurst has got their very own bánh mì hotspot – Bun Mese. Founders Jada Vi, Huy Nguyen and Johnny Tran have invested their time and energy into creating what they believe is the perfect pork roll, down to hand-crafted bread that keeps ‘em crusty on the outside, and fluffy deep within. While I like ‘em Ol’ School, loaded up with plenty of pâté, you’ll also find a vegetarian version, plus The Cha Cha decked out with chicken in special sauce, and Disco loaded up with beef and hot chillies. Will these new Darlo bánh mì unseat your favourite pork roll? Only a taste test will help you find out…
