Joo at Bun House in Chinatown - Korean & European-inspired Sharing Dishes


This August & September 2021 Chef Joo Won will be taking over the top floor of Bun House at 26-27 Lisle Street, Chinatown for a menu of Korean and European inspired sharing dishes, serving Tuesdays to Sundays.  Joo will be partnering with his wife, Sujin, a pastry chef, and dishes to expect include  Joo’s signature “JFC” - Joo’s Fried Chicken, and 3 day marinated flatiron beef bulgogi.  

This one is going to be very popular!

"Fresh from a recent sell-out residency at Carousel, Bun House will welcome chef Joo Won for a 2 month pop-up, taking over the top floor to serve his signature  menu of South Korean and European inspired sharing dishes. Joo will be accompanied in the kitchen by his wife Sujin, herself a renowned pastry chef with experience at The Wolseley and The Delaunay. 

The pair will be serving a selection of sharing dishes including thinly sliced, lightly cured grey mullet served in a sesame, chilli and plum soy sauce and their take on an Italian classic, a kimchi and cheddar risotto topped with poached egg and seaweed crisp. Joo’s signature “JFC” - Joo’s Fried Chicken - will also make an appearance on the menu with succulent chicken thighs, deep fried in a secret batter, accompanied with a gochujang, ginger, honey and apple and topped with creamy cashews and coriander. A 3 day marinated flatiron beef bulgogi, served with aromatic holy basil, spring onion, crunchy chicory and pickled mooli will offer the perfect twist on a traditional Korean Saam (“meaning wrapped”) whilst claypots of slow cooked lamb breast Jjim served in a pear and soy sauce with steamed vegetables, rice, seasoned cucumber and goji berries is a hearty, comforting take on a classic British stew. 

For those with a sweet tooth, desserts of raspberry, peach and cream pavlovas will sit alongside a dark chocolate cremeaux with yuza marmalade, hoji tea and toasted grain cream."
