"Inspired by crowded fresh produce markets and their mother’s traditional Vietnamese cooking"
The Story Behind Roll’d
Roll’d got its start in the world when two entrepreneurs decided to bring the essence of Vietnamese street food to Australia. Inspired by crowded fresh produce markets and their mother’s traditional Vietnamese cooking, the entrepreneurs recruited the assistance of a Vietnamese bakery owner to construct a delectable menu of Vietnamese cuisine.
Opening Day of the first Roll’d store saw 300 rice paper rolls sell out within two hours, and the group knew they had something special to offer Australian customers. Nowadays, Roll’d has over 30 locations around the country, and Australians can’t get enough of their fragrant Asian flavours.
Our Favourite Menu Items
While there are plenty of delicious meals on the menu at Roll’d, a select handful are sure to steal a piece of your heart. At the top of the list is a warming bowl of classic Vietnamese Pho. Packed with full-bodied flavour and the goodness of ginger, citrus and fresh chillies, this is the perfect lunch during Winter.
For a lighter option, Roll’d does a fantastic job of Vietnamese rice paper rolls, which they call ‘soldiers’. Our favourite flavours are lemongrass beef, BBQ chicken and barramundi. Make sure you grab a packet of Hoisin sauce to accompany your soldiers, and you’ve got the perfect lunch-on-the-go.
Every now and then, Roll’d offer up a sweet deal to make your Vietnamese feast even tastier. At the moment, when you purchase any main meal at Roll’d, you can grab a side and regular drink for an extra $5. Side options include hot sweet potato chips, spring rolls, crispy chicken ribs or crab crackers.
