Banh Cuon Ba Oanh ~ Vietnamese, Marrickville

Banh Cuon Ba Oanh does something a bit different to the other zillion Vietnamese joints around Sydney - fresh thick rice rolls, congee and sticky rice. And they do it well.

This teeny corner spot across the road from Cornersmith is busy, squishy and always abuzz with happy chatter. It's a fun vibe. The food is carby yet fresh and light on the oil, it has a special spot in our stomachs for when we feel like something brunchy and filling but 'clean'. If that sounds a bit too wholesome then you can nasty it up a bit with the house chili sauce, it's got a bite.

Steam rice noodle rolls with mushrooms, pork and fried cinammon pork - $11. Wet luscious fat rice noodles with slices of pork mystery meat, lettuce and dunky sauce.

Free range chicken congee - $11. Good congee jazzed up with fixings, highly recommended.

Xoi vang, cha - $11. Yellow bean sticky rice with fried cinnamon pork, onion and cucumber salad. It's a big serve of sticky rice and it is surprisingly flavoursome on it's own, like it was cooked in stock. The slices of mystery meat are also suprisingly good, must be the cinnamon. We swore we wouldn't be piggies and neck all that huge serve of rice in one go, but, you know...

Bun cha quat - $11. A lively pile of rice noodles, herbs, salad and bowl of grilled pork choppies and rissoles in sweet chili sauce. Oh mama.

Banh Cuon Ba Oanh is at 343 Illawarra Road, Marrickville. Phone 9059 0259.
