Vietnamese breadrolls A.K.A Banh mi is the bomb and I absolutely adore them. Whenever I’m in St Albans, Footscray or Springvale, that’s my go to snack/lunch depending on what time of day it is. What I look for is the crunchiness of the bread on the outside and on the inside has to be warm and fluffy like clouds. The meats, well the meats have to be full of flavour and yes, it needs to be a generous amount as well. So, walking through Springvale and stopped at Springvale Bread & Cake 2.
I got my usual mixed meat but instead of xiu mai (Vietnamese meatball), I got nem nuong (grilled pork sausage) for around $4.50. Now, the nem nuong was pretty good, a touch on the dry side but nothing a little bit of soy sauce can fix. There was a generous amount of pate (be sure to get this because it’s the BOMB) but the cold meats, not generous enough.
It didn’t satisfy my cravings but it did increase my appetite to go get another one from another bakery.
