Time Out says

Marrickville is truly blessed with some of Sydney's best banh mi

Marrickville’s eat scene is a true melting pot of flavours, with a reputation for quick but quality meals, so it should come as no surprise that the suburb’s banh mi offerings continue to expand and impress. It takes some guts to challenge Marrickville Pork Roll, but Alex ‘N’ Rolls – just a few metres down the road in a humble, converted terrace – puts up a mighty good fight.

Banh mi and sticky rice dishes are the only items on the menu, with just the right amount of care taken in the ingredients and preparation. The roast pork roll is a flavourful delight, a well-blended balance of saltiness and fattiness, with thick-cut pork carved fresh at the counter, and served up on a hefty and firm roll that easily accommodates the pork drippings in its fluffy filling. Maximise your pleasure by taking a seat at one of the tables in the sunny courtyard.
