My friend Sebastian and I had spied Roll’d as a possible lunch destination. I
knew thought this was a franchise (it’s not) and, to be honest, it looked very fast food-y. Expectations were not the highest, but we decided to give it a shot anyway.
We ordered goi (Vietnamese salad) with prawn & pork for me and chicken for Sebastian. The salads come with prawn crackers in a separate bag. There’s an option to add extra meat for $2 but the regular amount was fine for us. You are also given the option for some extra fresh chilli at no extra charge. Salads were great, fresh, tasty and reasonably filling.
Pork & prawn salad ($9.50)
Chicken salad ($9.50)
We also ordered a couple of low carb soldiers (rice paper rolls). Yes, low carb. These come with fresh vegetables instead of vermicelli and were great. Each comes with your choice of sauce in a small container, and there’s always the option to buy extra.
Fish, chicken low carb soldiers ($3.90 each)
I have also tried the salad with lemongrass beef, but my favourite so far is pork and prawn. Given the recent heat wave in Sydney I haven’t been keen on trying the pho, which you can order low carb (with less or no noodles), just yet.
