So big news…I chopped all my hair off. Like, totally off. I now look like Bradley Cooper in American Hustle except with shorter back and sides. But, being me I spent the entire day worrying about what I was going to have for dinner after the haircut. With my new Cooper pixie cut I bused, tubed and walked to what I thought would be my dinner salvation.
Yum Bun was everything I could ever have dreamed off. I would say hands down it is the best Asian I have had in London. They make the traditional chinese steamed buns, but pack them like pita pockets. I went for the pork and had the most succulent belly pork covered in hoi sin sauce, cucumbers and spring onions. I attempted to just have one, but the last bite was barely passed my lips before I was ordering my second. It was that good.
So I’ve told you about the joy, now comes the crushing desolation. The night that I discovered Yum Bun is also the night that it closed. Turns out that it was a pop-up restaurant that was at the end of its year long lease. Such a cruel world, just as I discover such beauty you make me live in the dark.
Yum Bun are looking for a new premises, and will be attending foodie events over the next few months so do yourself a favor and keep an eye out for them!
