Mr Crackles, Darlinghurst
Mr Crackles has been on the to visit list for months ever since we saw pictures of the huge crackling pieces and rolls making the rounds on social media. Unfortunately we just never got around to until now and I have to say we were really missing out on the food here!
Crackles Classic – crispy skinned slow roast 5 spiced pork belly served with Vietnamese salad in a roll
There were 5 pieces of pork crackling sitting in between the bread roll – the look of it made me drool a little, and the thought that the Manwich has double the meat… Needless to say the bread was fresh and crunchy, but when delving into the pork I started to question why it took me this long to visit here. The pork was utterly amazing, juicy and soft while the crackling was so crunchy and crispy. I munched on the pork without worrying how crazy I mightlook while eating, it was simply too delicious.
The next guilt-dish was the meat and salad, trying to be healthy when eating more pork crackling was a futile idea. I love the added coriander which brings a distinct taste. It may seem that theres more salad but the pork is very chunky in size and pretty much identical to the meat in the pork roll, still super crunchy, crispy and juicy. I really need a Mr Crackles near my work!
I really want to head back to check out the other stuff on the menu, especially the crackling in a cup and buffalo wings! Totally love the concept and I’m glad we have a place like this in Sydney especially since the items on the menu average around $12 which we thought was good value 🙂
