500 Bourke St Melbourne
9600 1995

Earl canteen has reigned towards to top of the cheap eats in Melbourne since opening.  It was one of the first gourmet roll/wrap bars to establish itself in the cbd and continues to draw an impressive lunchtime crowd despite a plethora of similar concepts being rolled out nearby.

The space is small but bright, tucked away near Movida Aqui in an atrium off Bourke St.  A compact menu of 8 rolls is complemented by a number of pre-made salad and sandwich offerings.  The theme here has a gourmet trash tilt, with meatballs, fish fingers and pork belly all featuring.  

In deference to a childhood of I&G fish fingers, I chose the fish fingers roll. The fish fingers seems fresh, the batter was light, and the complements of cos lettuce, tartare and lemon made for clean flavours.
