Calling all vegan eaters! Roll’d Vietnamese – one of Australia’s fastest-growing restaurants – is launching a brand new vegan filling on their bánh mì menu – the Vegan Lemongrass Chilli Chicken. This comes alongside the new Roll’d Shaking Beef, for your non-vegan friends.
The Shaking Beef is a sizzling love affair between a Saigon breakfast and classic Australian barbecue, while the Vegan Lemongrass Chilli Chicken is a hot take on the lunchtime favourite that’s both plant-based and delicious.
Adored Roll’d classics – including Roast Pork & Crackling, BBQ Chicken, Tofu and Lemongrass Beef – have also gone through fundamental transformations to ensure authenticity, flavour, and freshness.
“When we first launched Roll’d, bánh mì baguettes were one of the original menu items. While we’ve undertaken significant changes to our bánh mì offering, we assure regardless of filling, the essentials: quality French rolls, Vietnamese pâté and mayonnaise are non-negotiable,” said Hoang.
Featuring new baked-on-site rolls, every bánh mì also includes a traditional pâté recipe from Northern French origins, ensuring a more textural and full-flavoured experience with each and every bite.
To make things even better, starting today, Roll’d will be donating $1 from every bánh mì sale to Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation.
The Australian-run, Vietnam-based foundation supports disadvantaged youths and families experiencing poverty by building new homes, reuniting families, returning children to school, and providing other practical solutions to combat systemic poverty.
Roll’d Vietnamese set a target at the beginning of the year to raise over $60,000 AUD for the foundation to build adequate homes for families and children in crisis.
In February, Roll’d quickly surpassed this goal, raising $62,000 AUD in bao bun sales. The company has already initiated plans to build 12 homes in the next 6 months.
From today, Roll’d hopes to raise even more money and continue its commitment to doing good.
“Giving back has always been an integral part of our business. When I first asked my mother to borrow her recipes for the business, she agreed on the condition that we support people in Vietnam who haven’t been as fortunate as our family,” said Roll’d co-founder, Bao Hoang.
“We take great pride in transforming the individual world of others and are deeply appreciative of the generosity our family, friends and customers show towards supporting the efforts of Blue Dragon.”
$1 from every bánh mì sale will go to Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation until 15 May 2022.
