SYDNEY | Hong Ha Bakery is considered one of the best spots for a banh mi in Sydney, and when you bite into one of their rolls, you’ll see why. Located on Botany Road in Mascot (just a short walk from the airport if you’re visiting from elsewhere), the unassuming Vietnamese sandwich shop has been going strong for over 30 years. There’s a constant, fast-moving line of locals every day, waiting for their banh mi fix.
Bread is baked daily, used not only for Hong Ha’s rolls, but to supply many of Sydney’s Vietnamese restaurants. There’s a few types of banh mi on the menu, the most popular being the traditional pork roll. It’s a fresh out of the oven crusty exterior, light and fluffy interior Vietnamese roll, filled with types of pork (Vietnamese devon, cured and barbecued pork), pâté, mayo, and pickled veg, and optional sliced fresh chilli.
Along with banh mi, you can buy loaves of bread, schnitzel sandwiches, salads, baked treats, spring rolls, dim sims, and rice-paper rolls.
