There's more to the Canterbury-Bankstown region than just footy fanatics and stellar charcoal chicken. Keep your eyes peeled as you stroll down Burwood Road and you may notice Belmore Continental Bakery.

As one of Belmore's many bakeries, this humble joint has remained a hidden gem. Its inviting open-plan shopfront allows you to walk right in and discover a plethora of pastries, shelves stacked with freshly baked bread loaves and the bakery's very own treasure chest: its banh mi stand.

Not only is the local staple home to flaky pastries and golden-crusted pies — baked daily from 2am onwards — but it also boasts some of Sydney's best banh mi. Our recommendation: opt for the chicken roll with the lot, including the creamy mayonnaise and the flavourful paté. And be sure to ask for a generous topping of fresh chilli for the perfect, punch-packing bite.

There are plenty of rolls to choose from, though, with the bakery's selection including pork, chicken, salad, meatballs, barbecue pork and tuna.

Other store highlights include its array of meat pies spanning with classic flavours spanning from mushroom to curry — as well as its sausage rolls, custard tarts, cream- and jam-filled buns and danishes. They're all worthy of a trip to the west.

To top it off, Belmore Continental Bakery's friendly staff provide top-notch service with a smile. If you become a regular visitor, you'll be aptly remembered along with your order.
