One lunchtime KiwiKompanion and I decided to check out Mr Crackles after discovering it was really only a 10 minute walk from work.
When we finally got to the Oxford Street store, we found a small hole-in-the-wall takeaway joint with benches and stools lining the walls on both sides.
The large blackboard lists the interesting and exciting rolls on the menu including The Crackles Classic, The Sweet Pork, The Lamb, The Chicken Katsu and The Vego.
To the right is a glass cabinet with huge pieces of pork crackling which had us drooling!
Loud and distracting music was blaring from the speakers, and KiwiKompanion and I were not too keen on sitting around so we ended up ordering quickly and eating again small park.
Service wasn’t anything amazing and we didn’t even find that the staffs were friendly or even helpful. We ordered our food and waited about 5 minutes to receive our orders, which were called out to us by one of the staff members.
I ordered The Crackles Classic and KiwiKompanion ordered The Lamb.
The Crackles Classic contains five spice pork belly with crispy crackling and Vietnamese salad. The pork was soft, juicy, tasty and had a delicious super crispy skin. I also enjoyed the crusty roll and the tangy mayonnaise in the coleslaw style salad. Delicious!
Crackles Classic, $12.00
KiwiKompanion’s lamb roll had rosemary and garlic infused lamb shoulder with caramelised onion, tahini and spinach. She also enjoyed her roll and commented that the meat was soft and tender.
The Lamb, $12.00
Overall, the food was amazing and one of the top rolls I have ever had.
A great foodie experience that I highly recommend!
