The Urban List - Get Pho’d | Sydney’s Best Vietnamese Restaurants
These fellas do one of Sydney's best bánh mì. At this tiny Enmore corner shop, the Vietnamese pork rolls are a little different to what you’ll find at your local hot bread store. Instead of traditional pig cold-cuts, bite into some roast pork and crackling with green apple, or roast duck with watercress. The combo of slow-cooked meats with cucumber, carrot, daikon, and paté is heaven in a roll. Some ground rules: grab plenty of napkins, always say yes to Sriracha, and pair with a fresh fruit shake. You’ve got a meal made.
Good Food - "Sydney's Best Pho"
This is hipster pho with a solid pedigree - the recipe is passed on from owner Michael Le's maternal grandmother. It's a fragrant bowl, thanks to basil and star anise. While you're there, go the whole hog and order a gourmet banh mi, fresh roll and a glass of Vietnamese coffee.
Time Out - Sydney
The banh mi are the winning ticket here. A gussied-up version of the Vietnamese street food, these are slightly bigger than your standard bakery roll, with some fancy fillings. Caramelised pork belly slow-cooked in coconut juice is balanced out by a densely packed salad of shredded carrot, coriander, cucumber, and green onion stems. The addition of slices of tart green apple is a masterstroke and, in the absence of crisp crackling pieces, a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin seeds fills the required crunch quota.

Excellent Pho, Banh Mi and Duck Rice! Nice Atmostphere. Good Value.
Fun Little spot for creative, modern Vietnamese. They do some twists traditional recipes. Iced Coffee is delicious and the vermicelli salad bowls are filling and generous. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Excellent food and very friendly staff.
Been here two days in a row for lunch, incredible flavours for a great price, all staff are polite, and even at peak it takes very little time to prepare dishes fresh, and in front of you. Overall a great experience.

Great Aunty Three - Our Journey
My grandmother is the culinary queen in our family. Every time I go to Vietnam everybody talks about her food, about the successful restaurant she owned, they rave on about it, I still hear it!" - Michael, creator of Great Aunty Three – Vietnamese street food in Sydney’s Enmore.
Growing up in an old-fashioned Vietnamese household, great importance was placed on traditional family recipes and shared mealtimes.
On his first trip back to Can Tho in exploration of his roots, Michael came across the phenomenon of street food, the spark that ignited his entrepreneurial idea. Wanting to capture that experience and bring it to Australia, Michael reshaped his career and forfeited the stability of a 9 to 5 job in favour of starting his own business.
Armed with the knowledge and recipes from his Grandmother Ba (which in Vietnamese means 'three'), and support from his mother, Michael began drafting a plan to open what would later become Great Aunty Three. Established 2011.
