Bun House brings their Cantonese buns to Chinatown

What: Bun House

In a nutshell: Steamed Cantonese buns in Chinatown

Summing it all up: Since 2017, Bun House have built up a reputation in Soho for their steamed buns. Now they're expanding with a much larger restaurant in the heart of Chinatown (with new buns too). 


The low-down

Yes, it seems that Londoners really can't get enough of steamed buns. Already popular in Soho, Bun House is also opening a much larger restaurant in Chinatown and, as before, it's all about steamed Cantonese buns.

What's new about the second restaurant? Well, they're adding two new buns for a start - beef brisket and pineapple (which will be more like a brioche bun). So you 'll be able to order those alongside the char siu pork belly Pig Bun, cumin-spiked lamb and sweet custard bun from the original. 

But that's not all that's new. They'll also be adding snacks - curried fish balls and Cheung Fun (traditional rice noodle rolls topped wok-fried vegetables). And for drinks, expect Hong Kong craft beers as well as tea-based cocktails.
