Noodlies Sydney’s Best Pork Roll Search (12 March – 21 April)

As I’m chomping, I’ll be posting videos of the nominated pork roll shops with a very brief review summary.  The winner of noodlies Sydney’s Best Pork roll will be announced at the end of April.

So many pork rolls, so little time…

King’s Hot Bread: great crusty bread and creamy mayo taste.  Watch to the end of the video, they really do give service with a smile.

KK Hot Bread, Cabramatta


Nam Fong, Bankstown: great meaty taste, pate almost overwhelming, one for the meat lovers.


Bay Ngo, Bankstown: good pickles, but bread could be crunchier.


Flourland Hot Bread, Liverpool: cheap and cheerful in a unique location!


Vinata’s, Hughes St, Cabramatta: nice pickles, great meat and they make their own soy sauce.
See 702Sydney ABC radio broadcaster and a group of Sydney food bloggers rate this nominee.


Minh Hung “Hot Bread”, Hughes St, Cabramatta: great bread, nice price.


Kim Thanh, Cabramatta: Across from the station, it’s particularly popular at breakfast time for workers and students.


Viet Hoa, Cabramatta: Open 24 hours and is one of the oldest hot bread shops in Sydney


Hong Ha, Mascot: Feted by bloggers and foodies, the line can stretch out the door.


Marrickville Pork Roll, Marrickville: literally a hole in the wall, this place is easily the busiest in the area.


Hoan Cau, Cabramatta: Cheapest, cheerful and open very, very late.


Jamison Bakery, Penrith: Tasty pate, nice balance, bread could be crustier – one of the cheapest in town.


Tina’s Hot Bread, Canley Heights: the bread is one of the best crusty but not too ‘sharp’, very hot chillis too.
