ADELAIDE | I didn’t do much in the way of midweek lunches while in Adelaide, instead choosing to go light during the day and have a big meal out in the evening. When my friend got in contact with me, however, asking if I wanted to check out a Vietnamese roll spot that her brother’s involved with, of course I said yes.
Located in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD, Real Rolls focuses on Vietnamese inspired rolls, noodle and salad bowls, and steamed buns. Traditional isn’t the focus here, and you can get an assortment of tasty takes on the OG Vietnamese roll. Mine, for example, was filled with crispy pork belly, pork meat, and chicken, and topped with a fried egg. Everything, including the bread, is done fresh daily.
I really enjoyed my roll, the freshness of the bread and the crispness of the pork belly crackling really stood out. I also grabbed a takeaway lemongrass chicken noodle bowl for dinner and enjoyed that too.
