Vietnamese Banh Mi Pork Rolls - How does $3.50 sound for a traditional Vietnamese pork roll - Banh Mi? At the bottom of the steps to the tunnel from Wynyard station that takes you to Hunter Connection is a little Vietnamese take away shop. The shop title says Lavie Vegetarian Breakfast. They make the best Banh Mi pork rolls in the Sydney CBD. They take a fresh bread roll and then fill with onion, corriander, cucumber, carrot and topped with 3 different types of pork slices, they top it all with a Vietnamese sauce.

Japanese Food - Located on Erskine Street, close to the corner of Kent Street is Megumi Gourmet Japanese Food – the same Japanese take away shop has been operating in Wynyard Station for years now. At the end of 2012, Megumi opened a smaller shop on Erskine Street, not far from Wynyard Station which has a great range of smaller lunch meals at very reasonable prices. My top pick is the Chicken Katsu Salad for $6.90 with a choice of 3 salad dressings including Homa – sesame with soy sauce.
