Pork, pâté, pickles and plenty of love – while everyone has their favourite combination, the humble bánh mì is a stalwart of lunches on the go.
But whether it’s perfect crackling or that extra-crunchy bread, some Vietnamese rolls are a cut above the rest.
Started in 2019, the Vietnamese Roll Appreciation Group is a Facebook haven for Adelaide’s bánh mì afficianados.
Boasting more than 3000 members, from Salisbury to Seaford, the group encourages users to submit their reviews of Vietnamese rolls across the city.
