Vietnamese bakeries?

By CamillaG - 21 June 2011 28

I crave for my lunch staple, a Vietnamese bread roll.

Where are the good Vietnamese Bakeries in Canberra?

What’s Your opinion?

Waramanga has excellent rolls, Rivett are good too.
If you want a banh mi or Vietnamese pork roll you can get a good one
At the Saigon Bakery in Queanbeyan. Your best bet is to buy the saigon
Rolls and salad and make a chicken pate and build one yourself. They
Are very simple and pate can be made in 5 mins. Chicken livers
Butter, port or brandy in a pan with salt, pepper, onion and garlic and blend it.
Then spread in roll and add salad and pork. You will impress people with
Such a simple dish. Good luck.

I part own a Vietnamese restaurant in hoi an.

I managed to pick up a Saigon Roll from the bakery at Southlands a month or two ago. This was the first one I’d ever eaten, so I can’t really comment on its quality – but I found it tasty enough.

I asked once if they had sourdough bread & they looked at me as if I was mad…

I asked Baker’s Delight if they had Pork Rolls or Siu Mai rolls and they looked at me as if I was an idiot at a Vietnamese Bakery asking for sourdough … go figure.

Gold.

Raycli – you are right. I went to Fyshwick twice this weekend. They had sold out on Saturday by 1pm. Went back on Sunday morning for a seriously substandard roll. 🙁

what a shame, I only noticed that they had them the other day and now that’s dashed 🙁

I haven’t had one since the Hub closed

Vietnamese Bakeries is nearly an oxymoron. I reckon 1 in 10 is great the rest are as bland as can be.

It makes sense they don’t know about sourdough. The evolution of Vietnamese bread if from their french colonial past. The french were early in adopting industrially grown yeasts in part due to labour laws that protected bakers from having to work all night.

‘Thanks for that info – I had sometimes wondered why Vietnamese bakeries make much better crusty breads than franchises like Brumbys or Bakers Delight.

Don’t feel foolish Camilla. That said, the real name for the rolls is Bahn Mi not Saigon Rolls.

Except if you buy one in Hanoi and it’s called Bahn My and doesn’t have any on the multiple pork products that the Saigon version has. If you ask for Bahn Mi/My in the north you will get kebab meat on a roll. I have a pic but cannot paste into this post
