About Buns & Buns

Restaurateur Alex Zibi originally opened this bread-heavy concept in Miami (it has since closed), so he’s now trying his hand at a London location. Found on the old site of Jamie Oliver’s Union Jacks, Buns & Buns features an open-plan kitchen and a dining counter where guests can interact with chefs.


The space is much like its Covent Garden location – slightly cramped, noisy, a little bit chaotic (service is well-meaning, but not slick enough) and full of tourists. Despite all this, there are some decent dishes on the menu.


We kicked off with a bowl of crunchy beer-battered sweetcorn fritters, which were soon joined by a lusciously fatty pork belly bao bun, rubbed with a sticky-sweet slick of Bourbon-spiked glaze (food arrives as and when it’s ready). The best thing we ate however, was the delightfully buttery brioche lobster roll, stuffed with fleshy prawns and served with a mountain of shoestring fries, although we’re not sure the taste justifies its hefty £24 price tag.


To drink, there’s the usual mix of wines and beers, while cocktails such as the Mandarin Spritz are refreshingly fruity. With Covent Garden’s cool-factor slowly on the rise, Buns & Buns trend-ticking menu and bustling atmosphere should draw in the crowds looking for a quick, casual (and overpriced) dinner.
