I love bakery food just as much as any former tubby teen. In fact I would take a trip to Port Elliot merely to wrap my lips around one of their chunky steak pies and then turn that car back around and cruise on home.
‘How was the beach?’ You’d ask. ‘Don’t know. Didn’t get a glimpse’ I’d say.
Working on Waymouth Street, I noticed that a lot of my work peeps were mungin’ into what appeared to be some ridiculously good lookin' cold rolls and when I found out they were from a bakery around the corner in Topham Mall, I was a touch confused. A bakery with cold rolls? I hate to get all Salt n Pepa on yo’ ass but ‘Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaa?’
Finally I put two and two together like the good further educated girl that I am, and realised it was a Vietnamese bakery. This… I had to see for myself.
With a fairly average ‘classic deli’ kind of front, I thought that maybe I was in the wrong spot, assuming that this place was more of a day-old sausage roll and Farmers Union Coffee kinda place. Upon entering however, I see that like a man coming onto a lady-boi... I’d called it all wrong.
People are also going gangbusters for their Vietnamese rolls with many believe them to be the best in town. So you may just have to make a coupla' trips!
Until next time… Stay Rad-elaide.
