We've all tried a pork roll at least once but which place sells the best or nicest pork roll out of all shops that sell it?
Most people might think they all taste the same everywhere, but trust me, they don't. Some may taste good enough, some are really dodgy and not worth it or there's some that taste really nice.
At least most suburbs would have a pork roll shop. Whenever you see an Asian bread shop, they most likely sell pork rolls as well.
Now I'm not just talking about the pork roll itself; I'm also talking about the BBQ pork roll, chicken roll or the dim sim roll.
What does a pork roll consist of? You can tell them not to put the things you don't like. But overall, in a pork roll there is, fresh bread roll, butter spread, pate (a mixture of ground meat), carrot, cucumber, corriander, some cold pork meat, soy sauce, and optional of chilli pieces or salt and pepper.
I myself am not really a pork roll fan but I absolutely love the chicken roll at this one certain place. I've tried chicken rolls at other different bread shops and it doesn't compare to this place I go to.
The place is called Kim Thanh Company Hot Bread across the road from Cabramatta Station.
Everytime I'm in Cabramatta, I'm always eager for their chicken roll. They have the best made chicken roll. They put the lot like what's in the pork roll. Besides the soy sauce, they put something else that makes the whole chicken roll more delicious.
For their specialty, they put sweet chilli sauce mixed with deep fried onion, radish and the chicken isn't the one you buy from Red Rooster or Woolworths, it's chicken that looks like duck.
This place does sell cheese and bacon bread, cakes, bread rolls and many more. When you have the chance to go Cabramatta, I really recommend you to come to this place and try out their chicken roll.
They're pricing, $4-6, goes up due to high demand but it's worth every cent. It's filling and nice.
To me every place has their own specialty in specific rolls. There is a bread shop near Woolworths that has nice dim sim rolls. Or if you're feeling hungry in the middle of the night, and feel like a pork roll, the bread shop Banh Mi Viet Hoa on John Street, Cabramatta is open 24/7. How convenient is that for the locals? But if you live kilometers away from Cabramatta and are willing to travel to get the pork than take that chance whenever you can.
Unfortunately I've never had a Vietnamese Roll in Sydney, but I have had some great ones in Adelaide. I'll have to check out some of the places you've mentioned next time I am in Sydney, as I'm always looking to try new ones. I always love stuffing in extra coriander into mine!
you'll love it :D trust me. especially when the fresh bread rolls have just came out of the oven, it taste even better :D

Red roll in botany st mascot is amazing. Freshly baked rolls but tell them to go easy on the chilli! Also opposite building 1 of UTS (tower building) they make great ones.

I don't know what the fuss is about Red roll in mascot. The bread is not always crunchy and there is not pickled radish

Being a major fan of pork rolls and having travelled to many places in sydney on countless weekends feasting on my favourite healthy (albiet at times depending on the quality of chillies -very deliciously spicy ) snack i'd have to agree that whilst this article certainly listed one of the well known bakeries for pork rolls which in my opinion is not bad. However i would like to share with all readers who like myself are food lovers a hidden gem that sells ridiculously cheap (under $5) pork rolls and EVEN BETTER CHICKEN ROLLS!!! ( with their perfectly marinated and juicy chicken which is not oily at all !). The shop is located in the suburb of Ashfield called "Hercules Bakery" located on hercules street next to the station and i would definitely recommend readers to try out the amazing rolls there ( and dont forget to add chilli ) unfortunately im based abroad but whenever im back in town my tastesbuds will always drive me there ! :)
