In the last year or so, boa buns have been creeping more and more onto my plate. From street food markets and pop-ups to restaurants specialising in those fluffy clouds, there’s plenty of places to find 'em in the city. One of London’s newest offerings is Bun House in Soho, a cute café…
Under the control of the seasoned Mossman Family Import Company, Bun House will open in London's bustling Soho and is a restaurant dedicated to all things Bao related. The restaurant is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Alex Peffly and Z He. Inspired by the Hong Kongese movies of the 1990s and early 2000s, and the streetside ‘dai pai dong’ stalls, the restaurant will offer a fast, casual dining experience to its guests.
For anyone scratching their heads, Bao are stuffed buns that are produced using steam instead of traditional ovens. Using a variety of exotic ingredients and spices, each Bao ball will be bursting with fiery, flavoursome vegetable and meat stuffing. In particular, the Pork Bun dish, which is made up of char siu barbecued pork belly, is sure to please most fans of Asian food.
Alongside these delicate balls of dough, guests can also expect to sample a selection of delicious Chinese small plates and sides. Better still, guests will find a hidden secret bar, called the Tea Room. Styled as a Chinese speakeasy, guests can expect a range of intriguing cocktails, all created by the expert mixologists behind the bar.
