Marrickville Pork Roll 236 Illawarra Rd (2-minute walk)

Super great value, legendary pork roll banh mi; they do a vegetarian one also. You can ask for a wholemeal bun (at no extra charge) or to add tofu (for a small fee), and they will always ask, “with chilli or no chilli?” There’s often a huge line but it moves quickly, and they are so popular there’s even another location at the other end of Illawarra Road. Yummy rice paper rolls too.
