Bun House ChinatownBun House opens in April 2019.

After causing an Instagram flurry with their cute custard steamed buns, Chinese cafe Bun House adds a second, larger restaurant to the Greek Street original with this two floor venue on Lisle Street, in the heart of Chinatown. As well as the popular traditional Cantonese steamed buns - the char siu pork belly Pig Bun is especially cute - two new additions join the menu: beef brisket; and a soft, brioche-style pineapple bun. The Chinatown restaurant, which seats approximately 72 guests over two floors, also includes a small hatch from where traditional street food style snacks such as curried fish balls and Cheung Fun (traditional rice noodle rolls topped wok-fried vegetables) emerge. Cosy interiors are colonial in style, with dark wood highlighted by brass fixtures and comfortable rattan furniture.
