Pho Gio Hoi, Haymarket

The city may have all the different types of cuisine you can think of however it is not everyday where you will find restaurants or bread shops selling authentic Vietnamese pork rolls. There are also those that sell pork rolls but in my opinion they lack quite a bit of authenticity!

Pho Gio Hoi sells all the typical traditional Vietnamese meals such as special or no special beef noodles, spicy beef noodles and etc but you can find all those things along George Street. Rather, the highlight of today is our pork rolls - they sell both chicken and pork but they also have barbeque pork roll too for an extra $1.00.

Pork Roll - $4.50

They put in a lot of vegetables, more so than other places, which gives it the extra freshness! The only thing I would criticise is that is they can at times drown it in too much sauce and it is a bit more pricey than most other pork roll places but that's the city for you. Other than that, thats the perfect budget lunch!

Vietnamese pork and prawn rolls - $4.50

Their Vietnamese pork and prawn was quite average but what was more dissapointing is that their servings were SO small it was almost ridiculous! So if you want your value for money, I would suggest for you to try elsewhere as they those two rolls looked like small peices of rolled up lettuce in a tupperware box.
