Buns & Buns: A Review
Updated: Mar 19, 2019
I’m going to let you into a secret: always wanted to say I’m not only a lifestyle blogger but also a food blogger and now I have the ability to do so. Though, my Instagram feed, allows you into my strong interest in good tasting and good looking food I have, unfortunately, never stopped to write a review, but this stops now.
So the title of this post gives it away but a new food spot has opened in Covent Garden Market and its name is Buns & Buns, a friend of mine and I were invited to this lovely restaurant and it did not disappoint. As a long time Part-time waitress, I have enough knowledge of how great service works and how to make a customer feel appreciated. And that is what the whole team at Buns Buns made us feel like appreciated and even when the restaurant started to get busy the level of engagement of the Front Of House was absolutely impeccable (if I may say so myself).
So how is this place?
This place seam coming out of your wildest interior design dreams, like it is not only Instagram worthy but it is also very comfortable which cannot be said of a lot of pretty furniture. Another feature that took my interest was how green the place is, there are plants all around and make you feel like in a fancy plant nursery. The place has its own soul in the multitude of shops in Covent Garden Market, in fact, if the Market closes at 7 pm the show still goes on for Buns & Buns until 11:30pm with an multitude of cocktails to chose from.
But, what did you order?
Chilli Thai prawn bun
Pork belly bun
Asian chicken salad
Pão de queijo basket
Love You So Matcha
The food looked gorgeous, the pictures actually don’t make it justice, but most importantly it tasted different from your usual Italian food, it was of everywhere and nowhere a delicious fusion of cultures and flavours.
Into the nitty gritty.
Various Vegetarian options are available on the menu, the menu does not showcase Vegan options.
Prices: Prices range from £5 to £18 (for food) which is something you’d spend for dinner at Zizzi’s so absolutely affordable.
Final Thoughts: Definitely going back to try more cocktails, and if you pop in I highly recommend the Mandarin Spritz, it is something OTHERWORLDLY.
But, don’t take my word for it head over Buns & Buns to try it yourself:

Take care of you babe.
