After visiting Vietnam and Hoi An, in particular, no banh mi in Melbourne was as satisfying till I visited N Lee. Great banh mi and iced vietnamese coffee, that took me back to Hoi An and the sweet old lady that made seriously awesome banh mi.

The long line up says it all. Hey, I'm asian so I enjoy asian food. But the grilled pork roll here is quite possibly the best in Melbourne!

Good food and very competitive prices so there is always a queue. Problem is that the people serving customers are so over-worked that some look decidedly unhappy and surly in their manners.

Their pork rolls are popular here but the only cakes they sell are a poor imitation of the usual Australian bakery fare. Where are all the deliciously authentic Vietnamese cakes and sweets, in particular, egg tarts? Could be a lot better.

This Vietnamese bakery sells tasty Vietnamese-style rolls, from traditional roast pork, meatballs and skewered chicken, to a more common ones for sandwiches. There are only very limited seatings.

If you're looking for a cheap and quick bite for lunch then don't go past their traditional Vietnamese Pork Rolls (Banh Mi). They're dirt cheap and one of the best in Melbourne.

Always busy but very fast service. Cheap fresh pork rolls. Crusty delicious rolls. Worth the trip, walk it off by looking around the many shops in the area.
