Búntà, inspired by both Naples and Saigon, pops up at The Shop in Kensal Rise this Thursday (11th) for a night of Saigon Street Food. Full 6 course menu is £22.50; minimum order on the night is £15.
"Four years in Saigon, haunting its streets and alleyways and getting to taste some of the city's finest street side food, gave me the idea of lifting this indelible experience and bringing it to the streets of London, capital of Europe's international food fest where I have been based on and off for a number of years.
My Vietnamese tryst, combined with my lifelong passion for cooking, inspired my "Búntà" street food.
The concept of "Búntà" is based on authentic Saigon road-side food, packed with flavour but light and nourishing, healthy and tasty. The seasonal freshness of locally-grown produce is at the heart of our ethos, and the dishes can be adapted for Vegetarians, Vegans and omnivores alike. All our dishes are Gluteen Free.
We, at Búntà specialize in hand-made Steamed Buns & BBQ, using only quality ingredients.
Our amazing Buns come fresh from the steamer before your eyes.
Our Meats are naturally-raised because we believe that makes everything taste better.
We make our Pickles from scratch using the traditional method of rice vinegar and sugar and then marinating them with red chilis and Garlic. The multi-day process is long, but well worth the effort. Carrots and Daikon roots pickles give our steamed Buns and Vermicelli salads distinct sweet and savoury background flavours that are the hallmark of Vietnamese cuisine."
When - Thursday 11th April
Where - The Shop NW10, 75 Chamberlayne Road, Kensal Rise, NW10 3ND
