Rolls appeared recently on Hay Street. They serve a quick and easy menu. Very Fresh and prepared in front of you. Don't expect a big menu but what they do is worth sampling.
Coffee great too

Upon discovering that they sell Vietnamese food, I was instantly excited.

I was hoping that they'll be selling something different to Mama Tran, City Provisions or Caddy's Lunch Bar ...but sadly they weren't!

Rộlls at 996's menu (luckily fall under the "$10 Cheap Eats") sells pretty much the same kind of items as City Provisions, Caddy's Lunch Bar and Mama Tran, with slight variations to suit various diners, especially vegetarians.

If you are wondering about the name "Rộlls" - it's actually just a fancy logo and has no specific meaning in Vietnamese, other than a straight translation from "rolls = cuốn / bánh mì"

William, the shop owner, used to be an Engineer working for GHD, quitted his boring desk job late last year to pursue his love for food and hence that's how Rộlls at 996 was born.

Rộlls at 996's shop has a basic and clean layout with a single painting highlighting images of Vietnam on one of the walls.

Rộlls at 996 sells mostly baguettes, rice paper rolls (traditional and variations) and salads. Their prices range from as low as $4.00 for ½ a roll of baguette to as high as $9.00 for a Sun Dried Tomato & Pickled Capsicum Salad.

Being Vietnamese, I am extra fussy with any Vietnamese food I'd come across and of course the first thing I usually try are the 'advertised' traditional dishes and Rộlls at 996 was no exception.

The first item I ordered was the Traditional Vietnamese Salad with pork belly, prawns, shredded carrot, cucumber, green pawpaw and crushed peanuts. The salad came with nước chấm dressing and prawn crackers. For $8.00 I had expected the portion to be bigger than what I was served with (in a takeaway container).
