Bun HouseExpanding to larger premises, Chinese steamed bun cafe Bun House opened at this two floor site on Lisle Street in the heart of Chinatown in April 2019. A joint venture from husband and wife Alex Peffly and Z He, the focus is on traditional Cantonese steamed buns but also pays homage to Hong Kong's dai pai dong food stalls, with a small hatch inside the restaurant serving up traditional street food style snacks. Traditional Canton-style bao (buns) are served with house-made Chinese pickles and a selection of sides including prickly cucumber salad and house fries made from deep-fried duck tongues - a Chinese speciality. Pork Bun, made with char siu barbeque pork belly, is perhaps their most popular but you can also choose from lamb, chicken, fish and vegetable options. For those with a sweet tooth, two sweet buns are also on the menu - at Easter, they stirred up an Instagram flurry with their cute bunny shaped custard steamed buns. Cosy interiors at the double-fronted restaurant are colonial in style, with dark wood highlighted by brass fixtures and comfortable rattan furniture. Head upstairs for slow afternoons and settle down at one of the 54 seats to enjoy curried fish balls, tea-based cocktails and steamed buns.
