HOT: N. Lee Bakery, 62 Little Collins St, Melbourne

Summer’s here, the sun is out! (Well, not today. But it’s Melbourne so the weather could change by lunch time.)

Instead of eating your lunch at your desk, why not stroll down to Little Collins Street to N. Lee Bakery? Join the fast-moving queue of office workers, grab a $5.50 Banh Mi and eat your lunch in the sun! Treasury Gardens is just across the road.

My Vietnamese friend tells me that N.Lee does very authentic Banh Mi. Their most popular filling is the sliced cold cuts or pork, with a close second being the broken up pork meatballs cooked in tomato sauce. Both rolls also include pork liver pate, aioli, a smear of the tomato sauce from the meatballs, hot chilli sauce if you want it plus pickled julienned carrot and radish, onion, cucumber and coriander. Beats a ham and cheese sandwich any day!

The bread at N. Lee is also very good. The ‘tigering’ effect on their rolls is part of their bakery’s signature and it’s a crusty roll that doesn’t require a steak knife to get through it. Yes, it’s high GI white bread – but it’s delicious!

N. Lee also have an outlet in Smith Street Collingwood which I frequent more often. The rolls are slightly cheaper there (under $5) but for some reason the bread is different and I prefer the rolls in the city store.

For other great sandwiches in the CBD, try Migo’s, Waffle On and Little Mule. Where are your favourite sandwich shops in the CBD?
