Flesh and BunsThe second London opening from chef proprietor Ross Shonhan who brought us the ever-popular ramen restaurant Bone Daddies, Flesh and Buns is a laid back Japanese eaterie offering tasty parcels of folded steamed buns. For this below street-level Covent Garden restaurant he has taken inspiration from Japanese izakayas, informal bars for eating and drinking, specialising in hirata buns - folded steamed buns typically filled with pork - which originated from Taiwan. Buns are served with 'flesh' and salad vegetables, sauces and pickles, and you're encouraged to build your own from a choice of fillings. The kitchen, which is headed by Joe McCafferty, previously of the acclaimed Roka restaurant, also prepares a raw section - sashimi and oysters - and small plates of maki rolls and Japanese bar snacks including chicken yakitori, prawn tempura with lemon ponzu and fried squid karage with shansho salt. Best washed down with frozen yuzu margaritas, infused sakes, Shochu and Japanese whiskeys. A rock soundtrack that fans of Bone Daddies will recognise helps to create the laid back vibe.
