Bun House

Sadly nothing to do with children’s game show Fun House presented by mullet-sporting Pat Sharp, Bun House is a Chinese steamed bun street café on Greek Street in Soho. Due to open next week, the venue is inspired by the Hong Kong teahouses of the ‘60s. With interiors harking back to the city’s colonial days, diners can get their steamed bun fix up at the counter or grab them to go.

Priced at £2.50 a pop, the house bun is rammed with sticky barbeque pork belly, with other options including lamb, chicken, fish and a veggie option served with house pickles and sides like house fries (made from deep fried marinated duck tongues) and cucumber salads. Daring diners should order the Rec Choc Bun for dessert, crafted from dark chocolate, pig’s blood and chilli. Don’t tell everyone but below the bar is a speakeasy-style late night drinking den accessed via a secret door serving Hong Kong brewed craft beer and classic cocktails with a Chinese twist.
