To us Brits Bunnychow might sound like a boutique dieters salad bar. The kind where you could gather yourself a sad little bamboo pot full of limp iceberg lettuce garnished with some erm calorie-less water.
You’ll be glad to know this is not the case. Bunnychow is actually a South African street-food concept which has planted itself in Wardour Street.
Hollowing out ‘bunnys’ (freshly baked buns) and filling them with hot stews the chefs have cultivated a traditional Durban workers packed lunch for the taste obsessed flocks of Soho.
Served up in a camping pan the bunnys come a number of different varieties. Simply pick your bun and then choose from Piri piri pork, full English (award winning), veggie, Durban (the classic) or Chakalaka (spiced chicken) for the filling.
Bunnys are best washed down with a beer (which is lucky cos’ Bunnychow offer a nice range of bottles) however being based in Soho they have also have introduced a range of fresh juice cocktails
Piping hot and spot hitting Bunnychow makes for a cracking lunch spot and a handy dinner den, as a meal so tighty compressed into a bun is both sweet to look and ever so portible for cramming into your bag on a Friday night (NB. make sure you ask for the bread lid).
