Marrickville Pork Rolls: The taste of the Inner West (Kind of)
Marrickville is fast becoming the new Newtown for people who can’t afford to live in Newtown. With a selection of new bars, venues and eats, it’s beginning to generate more appeal for people keen to try a different slice of the Inner West. Marrickville is known for having a selection of international cuisine, with a convenience store catering for every country in the Asian continent. And amongst this plethora of global goodness lie one of the best kept secrets for getting cheap and super scrumptious eats in the entire Sydney area.
The Marrickville Pork Roll Shop is a little hole in the wall spot that on any given weekend you’ll find people waiting around the block waiting to grab one of their famous pork rolls. The rolls are between $4-$5, which is already enough incentive to grab one, but they also have a vegetarian salad option that still packs as big a punch as the meat options. So whether your poison is chicken, pork, BBQ pork, beef or salad – this place will have you licking your lips and will keep your wallet by your hips.
The rolls themselves have more layers than an ogre, and are brimming with tasty goodies inside like spring onion, pate and a chilli sauce (optional of course) that really gives the whole thing a kick. The rolls are practically bigger than the kitchen they come from and besides, who doesn’t love a big juicy bun packed to the brim with meat and condiments aplenty?
The Marrickville Pork Roll shop is a place that lacks pretension. It’s the place you go to when you need a feed the day before pay day, it’s the place you go to when you’re hung over as hell and spent all your money on drinks. It’s a Marrickville must-see, and also a Marrickville must-stay, having been a favourite for locals for over 10 years and is simply one of the raddest places to grab something cheap, easy and delicious.
The Marrickville Pork Roll shop is open business hours, seven days a week and is located just off the corner of Illawarra Rd & Marrickville Rd. Just look for the queue.
