If you were a fan of the psychedelic Monster Rolls food truck, you’ll be glad to know you no longer have to chase it around town. The team has taken over the spot on the corner of Crown and Oxford Streets to make its signature meat-filled rolls more accessible.
The mega sangas came about like this: at one of the team’s previous venues it served an over-sized roll filled with beef ribs pulled off the bone. It was big, delicious and super popular, and it was called the Monster Roll. Then the guys took it to the streets via a food truck. It couldn’t keep up with the growing demand so now it has found a permanent location.
Monster Rolls is open late, and the range includes lamb shoulder, waygu brisket, crumbed chicken and barbequed mushrooms, served on freshly baked baguette. There’s also a salad option that, with 12 varieties of seasonal veggies, is more than just an afterthought.
Sauces – created specifically to match each protein – complete the rolls. Each sauce, (the Louisiana, the Benricks BBQ and the chilli and more), has evolved over many years and incorporates flavours and techniques from around the world.
