[London] Yum Buns and more @ at Broadway Market (New area)
Broadway Market seems to be a really thriving these days and I recently discovered a whole new market has sprung up in the school yard at the London Fields end.. There are about 6 new stalls there, selling a variety of things including great looking steak sandwiches from the Argentine restaurant A La Cruz, some gourmet sausages, cupcakes, Churros and a stall selling Mexican fajitas.
The one that really caught my eye however was the 'Yum Bun' stand.. Inspired by the much hyped Momofuku pork buns in New York, a voluptuous slab of tender slow roast belly pork, crunchy cucumber and spring onion is enveloped in a moist, pillowy steamed bun, embellished with a choice of sauce (i found the classic hoisin to work best, although there were other options including a chili sauce which worked well too). You've got the best of both worlds between a crispy duck pancake and a steamed Chinese pork bun. So addictive I think I'm going to have to go back for more next week.
Looking forward to trying some of the other stuff on offer too..
These guys seem to be doing really well and getting about - saw them at the Thames Festival last week with a super cool customised steamer cart!!
The merchandise was as yummy as ever - the original pork buns are as good as ever, but the meaty portabello mushroom one with miso and walnut glaze are a winner too (and im not one to often choose the non-meat option!)
They are now part of Eat Street, so expect to see them around and about!
