Selina Hot Bread is a popular place to pick up a lunch time pork roll. What this bakery deserves more hype for however its vegan selections – mock tuna, mock barbecue pork and mock chicken.
The VN ham roll is a steal at $5 with five generously slabs of cold cuts (some, too thick) packed in with raw onion, shallots, red chilli, coriander and pickled carrot with the requisite spreads of pâté and butter. The acidic combination of raw onion and the fiery red chillies result in one of the spiciest, tear-inducing bánh mìs and we love it.
The tofu roll is filled with spongy pieces of tofu that are microwaved and stuck in a roll that is assembled with raw onion. The soy-and-hoisin marinated tofu absorbs all the savoury notes of its seasoning and works a treat with the crunchy housemade bread.
