Unless you've got buns, hun… In this edition of Get Out Of My Dreams And Into My Mouth, I head to Buns and Buns in Covent Garden for the bourbon glaze pork belly bun and shoestring fries with Chinese mustard and sun dried tomato vinaigrette and black sesame seeds. Sat in front and watching the busy kitchen was fun. Really lovely service from everyone too! #londonblogger #londonfoodie #londonbylondoners #londonfoodguide #londonfood #londoneats #totastemaker
Housed in their David Blaine-like box, Buns and Buns feels a lot more secluded than you’d think despite being in the middle of Covent Garden. I sat at the kitchen and really enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle as food was meticulously prepared.
The menu has a little something for everyone, from pizza romanas and sandwiches to bao buns and salads. The huge rotisserie chickens looked amazing!
I ordered the bourbon glazed pork belly bao bun, shoestring fries and green tea, all were delicious.
The bourbon glaze gives the pork belly a real kick. The best way I can describe the shoestring fries is deconstructed waffle crisps. Super thin shards of crispy potato with an accompaniment Chinese mustard, sun-dried tomato vinaigrette and black sesame seeds.
I was served by four staff members who were all really nice and friendly, even sharing a joke with a cook!
