got one today from the bakery just outside newtown train station. first time i've ever subjected myself to a pork roll from there, and the last time i will be. where was the soy sauce and my chilli you stupid bitch!?

nothing beats pork rolls from cabramatta, and this one bakery in asian part of bankstown.
as mentioned before, those chicken rolls from the place across from cabramatta are the shit!

Not sure about he pork, but give the chicken ones a miss. There's a reason they're cheap, manky brown vein meat.

So would this be the one closest to Hyde Park area?

^^ The food court in the Hunter Connection is the best.

They also have them at Summeroll in the food court under Starbucks on the corner of Park and Elizabeth. They're $6.50+ though.

Where else in CBD has them cheaper? Hunter Connection is a bit too far away from me (Liverpool St).

The little one on Illawarra Rd Marrickville is awesome, I'd have sex with it if it didn't have chilli on it.

There is a similar "hole in the wall" kind of place just down from the corner of Goulburn and George Street next to the fuji film place..

The only thing is that it is run out of a convenience store. I have had one there before and did not die but have had better.

I reckon the place in the Hunter street Mall is the best in the nth cbd area - there's a shop in the little "alleyway" area near the escalators, right at the front that does them for $3.50 -$4, really fucking tasty with fresh baked rolls.
Of course Hong Ha is still the benchmark :yum:

Where abouts was it at World Square? I never noticed it and I've been working around here for a few months.

Most of my work mates go nuts over Taste baguettes. They're overpriced and average imo.

Never thought about trying the Red Roll over at Wintergarden.

Anyone know of any good Viet bakeries on the lower north shore(specifically around Crows Nest)?
Sometimes I get a craving when I'm at home and lunch rolls around(pun intended).
