Bun House bao and pickle cafe is opening a second site in Soho. Founders Alex Peffley and Z He will open the largest Bun House in Lisle Street in Chinatown London on 16th April.
It will offer its signature Cantonese steamed buns with two new items on the menu – beef brisket and a soft, brioche-style pineapple bun. The site will also pay homage to Hong Kong’s food stalls, with a small hatch inside the restaurant serving traditional street food-style snacks such as curried fish balls.
The drinks menu will celebrate Hong Kong’s burgeoning craft beer scene, while there will be tea-based cocktails and cold-brewed tea. The double-fronted venue will feature sliding glass windows and an outdoor counter. Inside will be a 16-cover dining space with 40 seats upstairs.
Julia Wilkinson, head of group restaurant strategy at Shaftesbury, said: “Z and Alex’s design backgrounds will add a fresh creative aesthetic to Lisle Street.”
Peffley and He launched Bun House in Greek Street, Soho, in May 2017.
