Real Rolls, Adelaide CBD

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
