The Monster BBQ Bahn Mi

First of all, this Bahn Mi weighs over 1.5kgs.

First we start with Bacon Jam and butter, which is already delicious. Then we fill it with all the goodies you get in a normal Salad Roll: Cucumber, brined Carrots, Spring Onions, Coriander, Chillies.

Now, get ready for the meats. It is loaded with deboned slow-smoked beef ribs, smoked chicken and slow smoked pork belly! Then Pork Crackling crumbs and soy glaze, this meal SHOULD serve 3 but many many attempt to do it all by themselves. This really is Australia’s Largest Bahn Mi!

Third Wave has become a religious experience on the Melbourne restaurant scene. Since opening in 2010, we have cemented a reputation as a great neighborhood cafe with a loyal breakfast and lunch crowd. People come from far and wide to enjoy our exceptional coffees and vast breakfast & lunch menu. Then by night, we transform into a bustling BBQ joint, inspired by the classic American smoke houses of the deep south. Today we are proud to be recognised as one of the best American BBQ experiences you’ll have outside of the US.


Third Wave Cafe started as a trendy inner Melbourne café with an aim to grow and so we did. After 9 years, we are one of Melbourne’s favourite American BBQ restaurants with a huge emphasis on slow-smoked meats and burgers.
