NEW OPENING: BUN HOUSEThu 12 2016 | admin
Bun House, a new Chinese steamed bun street cafe, will open on the corner of Greek Street and Old Compton Street, Soho in early 2017.
Inspired by the 1990’s and early 2000’s Hong Kong films channelling ‘missed moments’ and bygone eras, as well as the country’s open street stalls known as ‘dai pai dong’, Bun House will offer affordable ‘quick eating’, or alternatively, buns to take-away in custom designed Bun House boxes.
The menu at Bun House will focus on traditional Canton-style bao (buns) served with house-made Chinese pickles and a selection of sides, including a Bun House take on a prickly cucumber salad and ‘House Fries’ made from deep-fried duck tongues – a Chinese speciality, guaranteed to make a believer of even the most sceptical eater. The signature Pork Bun, made with char siu barbeque pork belly, will be joined by a choice of other savoury buns such as Lamb, Chicken, Fish and a Vegetable option, priced individually from £2. For those with a sweet tooth, two still-secret sweet buns will also be available.
A selection of Chinese soft drinks will be available, but a late license will allow the team to also serve carefully sourced craft beer from independent Hong Kong breweries.
