The Rusty Fox

A cafe needs to have a lot of confidence if it’s going to charge $13.50 for a banh mi, particularly when it’s located five minutes drive from Footscray.

No doubt the ingredients used in the chicken banh mi at the Rusty Fox (501 Macaulay Rd, Kensington) are a few notches above those served at you’re average Vietnamese bakery. However, when I’m paying $13.50 for a sandwich – any sandwich – I expect it to be amazing, and this wasn’t.

I had high hopes following the first bite, but by the end I felt that there wasn’t enough coriander and the bread was a little too crusty.
